Roses need pruning all year. They need winterizing pruning in the fall, and clean up pruning in June after they flower. Roses need to be “dead headed” whenever a blossom is spent, so that the energy of the plant goes into growing new branches and flowers and not into developing rose hips.

You might want to wear gloves to protect yourself from thorns.

Roses contain a great deal of energy in their roots, and every spring revitalize and grow new stalks. You can trim a rose by at least one third every winter.
