Can anyone advise me on what to do with these roses in the following photos, do they all need to be pruned and can you suggest where to cut , I would really appreciate this , and can you suggest something to plant beside these roses in order to create ground cover and let me know when to plant the ground cover if possible any advise will be appreciated , not sure if I need to put down any kind of fertiliser tomorrow I hope to clean up the beds where the roses are and start pruning if I need to , hoping to get these beds sorted as I am eager to start growing food and I don't want to miss the planting times for the veg. If there is anything else you think I should be doing now please let me know really appreciate all the advise, Kind regards Kathy.

Start by removing dead, diseased and decayed wood, then remove grass around base mulch wiith well rotted manure, I would prune and leave only three healthy stems and cut back to approx three buds, Its not my garden but I would remove the willow/Ash growing beside it to give it space. I dont know what they are Hybrid teas or Floribunda, Now depending what your trying too achieve, A formal look or wild look. If its the wild look i would remove them and plant dog roses for flowers and nice hips, Sure start there and lets us know how you get on.
