Do you defoliate your roses?

18 days ago

I'm in Southern Cal close to the Foothills, we have mild winters not cold enough for the leaves on my roses to die and fall off. Some times I defoliate and some times I don't, its quite the chore with over 20 roses. For the most part my roses are healthy with the dry hot summers, the only pest I seem to be fighting is the chili thrip. Which wasn't not a big problem last year since we had a longer colder winter last year. Please share your experiences with mild winters and if you defoliate or not.
