To Prune, Or Not To Prune…?

To Prune, Or Not To Prune…?

I'm in zone 10, and I have three miniature roses in pots that I am not sure whether should be pruned or not. Last winter I did, and it took until late summer for them to look decent again. Help? They are looking really good now, and I'd like to get flowers earlier next year.
oops!
