Spring flowering bulbs should be purchased in the fall and refrigerated until December or January. At that time you can plant them. Roses can be pruned in December through February. Begin by choosing the healthiest looking 3-5 canes to save and pruning all the rest completely off. Of those you saved, prune down to about knee level. New stems will grow from below the pruning cuts. Enjoy your garden!
