Gardener's dilemma

It is always difficult to judge the moment to prune the roses. They are still putting out some great buds but the aphids and rust are a problem. This weekend? Next weekend? When did I do it last year? Surely July is getting late!

I must admit I watch the rose bushes in the neighbourhood and those council rose gardens I drive past on the way to work. When I see them chopped then I know that I am running with the herd and it must be time to prune. Are we all waiting this year for someone else to go first?
