Mini roses in bloom in January before pruning

rynkleJanuary 30, 2014

We are having a warm, dry winter and my mini roses are blooming like crazy. Really pretty, but I want to prune them back before Spring. Is it too late, or should I wait until this bloom cycle slows to cut the plants back?

As soon as this bloom cycle is finished. When I lived in FL. I would prune during February. If a bush was in bloom, I would wait until it was finished. Never bothered the mini's one bit.

Why do you prune them? Is there any benefit?

Hi rynkle When you get ready to prune your roses could I get the cutting? I can send postage. Please let me know. Thanks
