Buds have already formed on knockout roses, wait till after the first blooms open, then give them a light pruning (cutting just below the old bloom) to stimulate new growth and more blooms.Hybrid tea roses are cut back when dormant to about 18",Prune the old bloom to a 5 leaf lateral,this will encourage more blooms to develop throughout the summer.
According to recent hummingbird migration maps, they should be arriving between April 26th to May 9th in your area.
