When should you cut roses back? They are still putting on new leaves but no buds. It is between 30 to 50 at night now. I have several rose bushes and I don't want to lose them. Please help.

In the south our roses often grow and bloom all winter in a mild winter. Cutting may encourage a new flush of growth which is more susceptible to freeze injury. Therefore it is best to wait until about February (Valentine's Day) to do rose pruning.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
