Should I cut back my carpet roses at this time? The canes are rather long.

If you need to cut them back to be able to get by the plant or for some other practical reason, go ahead and prune just enough to fix the problem. Otherwise, wait until mid-February to do your rose pruning. That is the best time of year to cut them back.

Thanks and good luck with your roses!
