I have a rose bush that is blooming. Do I trim the dead roses? If so, how far down the stem?

When you cut rose blooms, you can cut as much stem as you want, but make sure to leave two sets of five leaflet leaves on the stem below the cut, so they can continue to feed the stem. Some roses bloom only once a year and some roses put on a continual display all season. If yours is a floribunda, you can expect roses all summer long.
