Ram­bling and species roses

Gardeners' World - - Roses Pruning -

Ram­bling and species roses as well as ground­cover va­ri­eties (some of which share parent­age with ram­blers and climbers) flower most freely on a frame­work of stems that have been made in the pre­vi­ous cou­ple of sea­sons. This means that the old­est flow­ered stems are cut out each year to en­cour­age the re­gen­er­a­tion of new shoots from the base and to stop them turn­ing into a bird’s nest of un­pro­duc­tive stems. Also re­move any scrappy shoots.
