What to Believe? Determining Fact From Fiction for Rose Pruning Advise

“Dear HT,

I found this blog entry (http://agardeningtip.wordpress.com/2011/01/08/how-to-get-rid-of-suckers-on-your-rose-bushes/) and found that the information is different from what you have posted.  They say the things don’t bloom and I can just rip them off.  You say different.  Which is right?



Dear Confused,

Thanks for posting this question on my recent rose sucker post.  I’ve looked at the post that you are referring to and the original that it was copied and plagiarized from (on About.com).  Both are incorrect and are a testimony that you cannot believe everything that you read on the internet!

The information used in my posts is always from reputable sources, like books, university extension websites, and industry leaders like seed or garden product companies.

If you are interested in more information, please check out the places I obtained my information from:

UC-Davis University

Texas A&M University

Purdue University
