I have a couple of Golden Wedding roses, which are looking very healthy with lots of new growth. I usually know what I'm doing with roses, but have always had HTs before, and these are floribunda. Do the same rules apply - i.e. should I be pruning them by a further third now? It always hurts me to cut off good growth, but I know it's the right thing to do with HTs.

do you want to have bigger plants or do you want to keep them small? RHS says this https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=176

Thank you, woofgang, that link is perfect; just what I needed to know. I'll prune the Golden Wedding less severely (maybe as I would the marriage for which they were given!).
Looks as if I'm late starting pruning, but I'm still concerned about late frosts. Maybe in a week when I've more opportunity.
OG I live in the south and have no plans to start pruning mine any time soon
