Early February is an excellent time to cut back roses. Hybrid tea and granda flora roses in particularly should ne pruned around this time every year.

Otherwise, roses become leggy, less vigorous, and unattractive. Unpruned ruses also won't bloom as well through the spring and fall months. Be sure to use a sharp bypass type hand pruner that makes a clean cut and minimizes damage to the stems.
