Answer for When do you prune roses in Prescott Valley?

Ideally you want to prune roses before they break dormancy and after springs final frost.  In Prescott Valley plants tend to break dormancy before the final spring frost.  A winter mulching will help keep the roses in dormancy through PV’s late winter & spring’s temperature swings.  February is a good happy medium on major pruning.  Summer pruning is immediately after flowering & is a light pruning, really just deadheading the flower right above the first leaflet with 5 leaves.
