Roses: To Cut or Not?

I just finished this round of deadheading my roses. I have several roses blooming, all beautiful. But for me, it’s a bit painful (and I don’t mean the thorns this time!) to cut my roses in order to have cut flowers in my home. I have some roses that would look great in a vase, with their long graceful stems. But I just prefer having my roses (and other flowers) live their entire life cycle in the garden.

I’ve cut a few roses to give to a friend in the past few weeks, because they bring her so much joy – it’s great to give to others. It’s all about preference. One of the best gifts I was ever given was a gift of a rose plant of my choice. It’s still blooms today!
