In Vermont? We are having our 2nd REAL spring day and I sudden;y realized that I didn't prune my roses in the fall, because I wanted them to have a little extra protection, and because everybody told me I could also wait until spring. My question is, did I wait to long to prune and still get blooms this year?

I think you are fine. April is prime rose pruning season in the north, at least it is for me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Good Luck!

I always wait to prune until the new growth starts. "They" say to prune in the fall, but I always lose portions of the bush in the winter, so I just wait until spring to see what's budding, trim what's dead and whatever else needs it.
