I believe it's time to prune back my rose bushes. But they are going strong and bursting with blooms. Should I wait until they are ready to stop blooming or go ahead and cut back now.In fact, during our recent freeze they were beautiful with blooms. I'm in Central Florida

Roses are usually pruned back in December in your gardening region. If yours are in full bloom, I'd wait until there is a lull in flower production and prune them back then. March is probably a good time to prune. Enjoy your roses!
