Climbing Roses


Step 1: Undo the trained rose.

Step 2: Check all branches for dead wood.

Step 3: Remove all the dead wood.

Step 4: Retain young vigorous branches.

Step 5: Only remove a few old branches if new (pale green) branches have grown from below.

Step 6: If the secateurs are not up to the job, use a tree saw.

Step 7: Tie on the long main branches again.

Step 8: The side branches are not pruned; the rose will flower on these again from June onwards.
