When should I prune roses?

Roses should be pruned between late winter and early spring, to match the time when you are expecting to see new growth. The harder you prune back the more you will promote new growth, while a lighter pruning is likely to stimulate less vigorous growth.

There can actually be variations across the UK in terms of the best time to prune roses as in the South spring growth can start as early as January, while further North you may not see any new leaves until April.
