Will my roses have a second spring flush?

5 years ago

We have had a very mild winter (only one 2-day freeze) and this has encouraged my roses to flush very early. Several of them are either in full bloom or pretty heavily budded. I have never had this happen in February, so I am concerned that I won't have my usual spring flush in April Will the bushes indeed have a second flush at that time? Although I often have a few roses blooming sporadically throughout the winter, this is the first time I have seen such a heavy bloom in February. I normally prune, although lightly, in mid February, but have hesitated to remove that much blooming material. Any thoughts on what I should do?
