can I trim these

newbie21June 22, 2014

We planted these roses last fall. They are growing fast but have a terrible shape. Can I shape them up... Even though it is summer time?

Sure, no problem. Round them off. They will just grow again.

However, it does look like the longer growth they are producing is more like the eventual mature size of the plant. If you wait they'll likely become more symmetrical on their own--- your choice.
