|The timing of rose pruning in your gardening region is a little different than in regions with cold winter weather. Your roses will slow their growth but they probably won't go into dormancy. Even though they are not dormant, you can safely prune your rose bushes in December or January. New growth will appear within a few weeks and you'll be enjoying flowers in late February or early March. Best wishes with your roses.
