PRUNING OLD GARDEN ROSES
(albas, bourbons, centifolias, gallicas, etc.) AND SPECIES

For roses that bloom only once, do not prune during winter; prune immediately after flowering. If in doubt about pruning old garden roses, the best policy is do nothing. Old garden roses do not need or like the kind of heavy pruning that is beneficial to modern roses. Prune right after flowering has finished. Remove old, dead or unproductive wood. It is often beneficial to reduce the plant each season by one-third (oldest wood) in order to stimulate new growth.
