How do you deadhead roses?

Deadheading is the removal of withered flowers before they can make a seed pod or rose hip. This prevents the energy going into making seeds instead of flowers. Simply remove the whole truss by cutting down the stem just above the third set of leaves. Stop dead heading by August if you want the rose to harden off for winter or set hips.
