my rose which has 5 stems with multy blooms on the top,where do i prune them back to when the blooms have finished ?



You usually find some flowers are finished before the others on the truss have, so I just clip off the spent flowers on their short stem, and when they're all done, prune back the long, single stem they appeared on to an outward facing bud, cut at an angle away from the bud - you can take up to 8 inches of stem off in order to achieve that if necessary.
