Due to physical problems I am unable to look after my garden this autumn. A lovely garden chap who has helped me out in the past and who was going to do some work recently has unfortunately had a bereavement and can't help. My main concern is, should I prune my floribunda roses now or would it be ok to leave that till early spring?



They are better left until early spring, after the worst of the frost. If you are in a windy place you can shorten them now just to avoid the wind loosening them but do the main prune later.
Sorry you are having problems and hope you will be fit again soon.

Yep, leave them 'til spring - when I had roses I used Mother's Day as my rose pruning day.
