Care must be taken when pruning your roses to cut them just above a new bud. This allows for the new growth. Try to imagine the shape of your rose plant when it is fully grown and prune allowing for the new growth to develop into this shape. Ensure the corect time of year to prune your roses allowing for weather patterns and conditions - even though most roses are quite hardy and tolerant- you want to give them the best opportunity to survive.
