Pruning questions for old rose (shrub?)

15 years ago


I recently moved into a house with a rose in the front yard. It has been neglected for several years and I would like to help it. The base of the plant, which can be seen at the link, makes me think it's a good few years old. I have given it some water soluble "rose food" a few times. I'm sure it needs a good pruning, probably in spring? If you didn't guess already, I have no rose experience.

The link is to three photos of the rose. Just click the arrow at the top to see the next photo.

Thank you,


Richmond, Virginia
