Answer: I'm assuming you have hybrid teas. Major rose pruning is done in January here, to prepare for the peak boom period in April-May. Hybrid teas are cut back aggressively at that time. Another lighter pruning is done in mid-September to prepare for the second bloom period in fall. Since it's already mid-November, I'd wait until January to prune. "Desert Landscaping for Beginners," 0-9651987-3-1, Arizona Master Gardener Press, has an excellent chapter on roses care for the low desert.
