Pruning a banksia rose is done after flowering. It could be either during the end of spring or onset of summer. The basic aim of pruning a lady banks rose is to remove dead or diseased branches. Even damaged branches are to be pruned. Such branches can be identified by the color changes of the stem. If the stems are yellowish or brown, you may remove them. The branches have to be removed from the very base (as close to ground). Loppers can be used for this purpose. You may also remove the canes that are overgrowing, if you wish to reduce the size of the plant. In that case, make sure that the cut is made just below a set of leaves. In this way, you may also prune the branches to a standard height.
You may prepare some excellent rose fertilizers using some of the commonly available household items. Rich in magnesium and sulfate, epsom salts can be diluted with water (one tablespoon for one gallon water) and used as rose food. The same applies to white vinegar that can also be used in the diluted form, as described above. Instead of throwing away the egg shells, you can use them for feeding roses. All you have to do is to let them dry, before grinding to a fine powder that can be applied to the soil. Even the water in the fish tank is rich in nutrients and so, don't discard this water, the next time you clean the tank. Use it for watering rose plants.
