The ideal time to prune roses is just as they are leafing out in spring. When you see buds swelling, it is time. An old saying is to prune roses when the forsythia blooms. I find this a week or two too late where I live. It takes lots of plant energy to leaf out. Allowing the rose to leaf out and then cutting off those new leaves is stressful to the plant. Any time you notice dead, diseased, dying or damaged canes, they should be removed promptly. [1]
