I cut my roses more haphazardly, will say  one year in November, the other year late in Feb. or early in March, depending on how long my roses (various) keep flowering. In doing so I have experienced that roses cut in November begin to sprout and blossom earlier in the year, and yet keep flourishing until the  end of November. I wish to add the my roses are kept on a large balcony near the house front. Now, when is the best cutting time for my roses? They - my roses - seem to take it quite indifferently.

My wife and I are fairly new to rosing and have a ? about triming our rose bush. We have a CHRYSLER IMPERIAL bush that so far has produced 3 spectacular blossoms, however, the rest of the bush is not growing. We know that we're to cut/prune to promote further growth but do not know whether to trim just above the spot where 5 leaves are growing or 3 leaves. Any help/comments would be great to read.

It has been my experience that you can cut to the first healthy leaf set (any confirguation).  It is best if you cut to a leaf set pointing in a direction you would like to see growth.

Best of luck

Check the past HelpMeFind Ezines as there is an excellent article written by George Mander about starting roses from cuttings.  I'm sure it will answer all your questions.
