When to prune roses

Pink easy rose in bud

I like the rule of thumb that roses get pruned when the forsythia begins to bloom. In other words, NOW! In Utah our forsythia starts to bloom in late March, sometimes sooner. Keep an eye on them in your grow zone, as they are a great indicator of when spring is actually here.

Pruning helps your roses bloom better, especially if you cut spent flowers all during the season.
