    Pruning should be done in very early spring. Dead-heading, or removing flowers that are done (spent) is recommended if you have a rose variety that blooms more than once. If your rose only blooms in June, then leaving blooms on the plant will produce colorful rose hips. If you expect more blooms this summer, look past the bloom for where 5 leaflets are found. Trim just above (1/4") an outward-facing 5 leaflet. If you know what type of rose you have, you can search online for on-going care specifics.
