thank you! i have a HUGE rose bush (i am talking over 6' here - jealous lol) in my front and i was scared to prune it back too much. my mom did help (another ADVID gardener) and i thought she took off too much but nope, she followed your rules! hopefully it looks gorgeous this summer!

Yes, Im jealous but glad I could help!  Actually, its a little early for pruning roses still, but dont worry!  I find they usually get some tip kill in spring when we get our inevitable snow storm in April... or May...  or...  lets not go there!

Anyway, you may find the tips die back more before the buds start growing which just means youll have to do a little more pruning in late spring.

Cheers,
Janice
