Tools For Rose Gardeners

The Right Tools Make All The Difference

If you grow roses, then you know that the right tools for the job are very important. Below is a list of tools that I use and have proven to be very useful to me in the garden.

Pruners – A good pair of pruners is a MUST HAVE for rose gardeners. Only use bypass pruners as shown here. Making a clean cut is essential when pruning and deadheading roses. Avoid Anvil type pruners for roses. They can damage your canes, as they do not make clean cuts. Jagged or uneven cuts will invite die back and disease into your garden.

Loppers – For larger canes, a good pair of loppers will do the trick

Saw – A good pruning saw is essential for clearing away dead or stubbed canes that pruners and loppers cannot reach.

Rake – I prefer a small flexible rake for cleaning up in between my roses. Keeping your rose beds clean is one of the hallmarks of a disease free rose garden.

Shovel – I am forever moving, removing or planting roses. A sturdy round pointed shovel sure makes the job easier.

Scissors – Once you’ve done all that work outside, it’s time to cut some blooms and enjoy your roses! A good pair of floral scissors will help make arranging easier.  I use mine to cut stems and remove greenery. Keep them rapier sharp for clean cuts.

Sharpener –  Speaking of keeping your tools sharp, no gardener should be without a good sharpener to keep your pruners and scissors in optimum cutting condition.

    My favorites I bought by accident. I got a pair of snips to take cuttings. FS 4310 Much smaller than I expected. I was very disappointed in myself for not noticing the size, but I use them constantly! The rounded ti means it goes in my pocket. Love this little guy. Most used pruners in my bucket!
