    Last Oct/Nov I pruned my roses fairly hard and covered the crowns with mushroom manure. They have come through the winter with no problems, but now with the very mild winter and early warm spring that we are experiencing in Vancouver they are actively growing. Should I prune them again and if so when?. I am bit concerned that if I don't prune them the stems will be long and leggy and not support the blooms. Or, do you think they are okay to be left. Any help appreciated.

    They look fine to me. The new growth will become less flexible and more woody as the months progress.Later on if you think the plant is getting too tall you can prune off spent flowers lower down the stem. This will force new growth to be lower down.
