Yes mid to late August is a good time to cut roses back by about 1/3. Then fertilize them and water it in well. They'll respond with fresh new vigor and growth and you'll have a great bloom show in September and October. Just keep the foliage healthy with some periodic protective sprays if the plant is susceptible to mildew or other diseases.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
