How do you trim off the dead rose buds? At the 3 leaf or 5 leaf branch?

Regular deadheading is an important a part of pruning. Cut so that you leave at least two 5-leaflet leaves on the remaining stem. The ideal place to cut is just above an outward growing bud and/or the uppermost 5-leaflet leaf.
