Your frost dates and growing season is similar to those in California, so rose pruning can be done in March in your region. I usually wait until I see some activity - swollen buds on the canes - before I begin pruning my roses. You can do the same, or you can prune them while they are dormant. Either way they will be ready to grow and perform beautifully for you this summer. Enjoy!
