Hello, Susan -

Yes, depending upon the type of rose bush. This article on pruning roses from the University of Illinois Extension, covers the topic well, I think:

Prune in the spring time. Cut diagonally away from the bud. You can take up to 1/3 of the height.

How do I cut back old roses ?

Rose bushes can be heavily pruned, I did my mothers many years ago and they grew very well after, for size, 4 bushes totally filled a space about 4 metres long and 2.5 metres high. Far more and stronger flowers after pruning. To actually do pruning use secatures(sp), I prefer bypass ones to anvil ones. Cut just above new stems. My mother's were taken almost to ground level but they were pretty out of control. Hope this helps.

When is the best time to prune rose plant

I like to prune mine after every blooming, but I live in a climate where it blooms year round. I am not sure where you live, but if you have a cold winter, prune them heavily just before the spring growth season. Depending on where you live that could be anytime between January and April. If these are older established roses. Prune them back after each blooming during the growing season. You will get a lot of flowering this way.

What time of day can i prune rose bushes ?

The roses don't care about the time-of-day. They won't like it much at any time other than the end-of-winter (before spring growth). Give them some rose food to make them feel better after you clip them.

Can I use dull pruning shears to trim a rose bush?

You shouldn't use a pair of pruning shears if they are dull because they could do more harm that good for the plant.

How and when do I cut my rose bush for the winter?

Why Prune Roses Encourage new growth and bloom Remove dead wood Improve air circulation Shape the plant Tools You'll Need By-pass Pruners Long-handled Loppers Thick Gloves (preferably long ones) Rose Pruning Basics Use clean, sharp tools Look at the overall plant, but begin pruning from the base of the plant. Prune to open the center of the plant to light and air circulation Make your cuts at a 45-degree angle, about 1/4 inch above a bud that is facing toward the outside of the plant. Make sure it is a clean cut (not ragged) Remove all broken, dead, dying or diseased wood (Any branches that look dry, shriveled or black. Cut until the inside of the cane is white.) Remove any weak or twiggy branches thinner than a pencil If cane borers are a problem in your area, seal the cut with a white glue, such as Elmer?s. Remove ****** growth below the graft. Remove any remaining foliage When to Prune Roses Timing is determined by the class of the rose plant and the zone in which it is growing. Most rose pruning is done in the spring, with the blooming of the forsythia as a signal to get moving. If you don't have forsythia, watch for when the leaf buds begin to swell on your rose plants, meaning the bumps on the canes get larger and reddish in color. Hybrid tea roses are the most particular about pruning. If you don't know what type of rose you have, watch the plant for a season. If it blooms on the new growth it sends out that growing season, prune while dormant or just about to break dormancy, as stated above. If it blooms early, on last year's canes, don't prune until after flowering.
