Cut back climb­ing roses

Garden Answers (UK) - - What To Do This Month... -

Al­though it’s too early to prune roses fully, it’s a good idea to cut back the long whippy stems of climb­ing roses by about one third be­fore win­ter sets in. This will stop the wind from pulling at the top growth, which can rock the roots and dam­age stems. Cut back to an out­ward-fac­ing bud and tie in the re­main­ing stems.
