Question From: San Francisco, California, United States
Q: Too late to prune friend's roses? Floribunda still flowering. Weak stems. Too many rosehips. Dec 2016. Wait for spring? too late?
Justice, I live in Michigan were the roses are covered with 5 inches of snow. Here we recommend waiting until spring to do major pruning of roses. California is like a different country weather wise and to make it more confusing Northern California weather and southern California vary. I suggest you Google when and how to prune roses in norhern California. I found several websites and videos that sort out any issues. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
