Can I prune a budding rosebush?
I have several rose bushes on my property. This is the first spring that I have lived in the house, and wanted to prune the roses. I read online that a good sign of when to prune is when the forsythia blooms. I have noticed that it is now indeed blooming in my area of upstate New York, so I purchased my pruning equipment and planned to do the pruning this weekend. I noticed that my rose bushes are budding (leaves). Is it still ok to prune them?
