i have a gentle hermoine which produced suckers this year. Having cut the suckers at base, I have been left with one main stem. i am not sure how i go about preventing more suckers while allowing the plant to produce more growth at base. Please help.

Asked from the GoYpedia pink roses page



How do you know they were suckers? Were the "suckers" a more bronzed or reddish colour than the older growth? If they were, you have cut off perfectly good new shoots.
