The yellow lolipop rose below took a battering from a severe aphid infestation that took a couple of heavy treatments to clear. It has been like this for at least 2 weeks now.

Should I cut the branches off above the new growth or just leave it?

Any advice welcome

Thanks in advance.

I'd cut back to that first bud you can see in the first picture - that'll be where new growth breaks from.

I have pruned some of the dead and old growth.
