Pruning Rosa Rugosa Roses, help!

16 years ago

Hi all,

I am new to this site and I have 2 Rosa rugosa bushes that have overgrown (yes, I neglected them because of an illness).

Anyway, now that I am feeling better, I started to prune these bushes, I can clip them, but I can't pick up what I have clipped off because they have too many thorns and I am already bleeding from trying to put them in a garbage bag.

One of these bushes have grown to 10 feet high!

How do professionals handle these bushes?

Any advice would be appreciated.
