Prune Roses In Winter?

Answer

You should indeed prune your roses in winter to make them healthy and fresh for the warmer months. However, it is not necessary to prune them all winter long. You can wait until late February to prune them, which will get them ready for a spring bloom. You want to make sure the last frost has occurred before pruning, so if you live in an area that get severe and extreme winters, you may want to wait until mid or late March to prune your rose bushes.
