When is the best time to prune roses and how far back do I prune them?

I have a beautiful Lincoln rose bush. My neighbour is severe with her pruning and always gets great blooms. I get a few good blooms but would like more but I know I'm not as quite sever in my pruning methods. What is the best way to prune. How far do I prune the rose bush without ruining or killing the bush?

Answer: Hi Grace,
The best time to prune roses is in July when the plant is dormant and no longer putting on new growth. I have attached a link from our website which will help you to know how to best tackle this job.
