How to deadhead roses to keep them blooming

If your roses are starting to wilt or are showing brown petals, you need to know how to kill roses. Deadheading is essentially when you prune spent (wilting) or faded flowers to encourage new blooms and healthy growth. This simple process gets a rose bush to expend more energy on budding and blooming new roses instead of wasting it on dying roses or developing seeds.

Not knowing how to properly decapitate roses can encourage fungal infections that can lead to stem death. However, dead roses will keep your flowers in your garden tidy and more attractive, so it’s worth doing.
