I know you probably aren’t thinking about gardening, since we have not seen the sun in 2 weeks, but it is going to be nice this weekend. Rose books will say to cut back your roses in the middle of Feb but in south La. I think we should do it in the middle of Jan. We should cut shrub roses back by 50%. (height and width) Climbing roses should only be cut back if they are in the way. Finally, the middle of Feb is a good time to start feeding your trees and shrubs. Happy Gardening!
