Auntie Em, Auntie Em ... guess what?!

So I've got news that turns the rose-gardening world on its head.

Deadhead at the neck.

That's right!

Since time began, we've been making our cuts at the first leaf-bearing five leaflets.

No more! says the Royal National Rose Society. They did a trial in England and deadheading the rose at the neck "radically affects its rebloom."

Radically!

I'm going to try it this year.

Oh-kay. That's enough excitement from the City of Roses for one morning.
