Hello –

The best time to prune a rose bush is in early spring. Begin by removing any dead, diseased or winter damaged wood, cutting it back to where it’s healthy. Make cuts at a 45° angle to prevent water from setting on the pruned area and apply Tanglefoot Pruning Sealer to the exposed surface to accelerate the healing process and protect against insects and disease.

Hope this helps!
