You can nip the ends by about ¼ their length but never, ever, ever hard prune down to two feet or less. However, you can prune the laterals all you want. I generally prune them to within one to two feet of the main canes. And I’ll do this all year to keep the rose tidy.

We recommend pruning in late winter/early spring, when the first growth is beginning. This is generally between February and April. It is ok to prune earlier, but it can be more difficult to identify the less healthy stems that you will want to prune out.
