|I did not trim my rose bushes back this past fall due to illness. They have not yet started to bloom, but are getting new leaves on them. Can I go a head and trim them right away or do I have to wait till the fall?

|It's fairly early in the spring so go ahead and prune them as you normally would. New stems, foliage and flowers will develop just a few weeks later than usual, but your plants should be healthy and happy.
