Grow roses: Floribunda
: "Maintaining Healthy Roses
Late winter is the best time to prune. Most gardeners prune in January or February, depending on their local climate. Remove all debris first, and dead foliage from the plants and around their bedding. Clip off all dead bark-like canes. In order to promote new growth for the next season, remember to remove all the old flowers.
If it's warm enough, it's a good idea to fertilize the ground with organic matter at this time.
Although you should try to maintain some shape to your rose bushes, be gentle with the cuts. Many horticulturists say that Floribundas, in their first year, flourish with a cane 6 inches long.
Now, just sit back, relax and watch your flowers bloom beautifully for many months to come. "
