The author offers advice to rosarians on the care of their plants as spring approaches. He explains that new shoots known as basal breaks are important growths rosarians will observe originating at the bud union which is at the base of the plant's trunk. He emphasizes that basal breaks represent the new growth of rosebushes. He says growing roses which sprout these breaks with regularity is important. To ensure the growth of new canes, he suggests supplying the plants with a large amount of nitrogen-laden products and Epsom salts.
