How to prune your roses
In the fall, prune the plant back to 3 to 5 of the strongest canes. These will be nice and green or thick and vigorous and have obvious eyes that will be the new shoots. Each eye will become a whole branch.
Prune into an open vase structure because roses like a lot of air circulation.
Why: If you have too many crossing branches or plant them too close to other plants, they tend to get two very common diseases: black spot and powdery mildew.
