Q.How To Prune An Old Climbing Rose

Zone Swindon SN2 United Kingdom | Anonymous added on September 14, 2022 | Answered

I have an old climbing rose against a wall that is out of hand. Trouble is, I have no idea where to start pruning it to get lower growth. I have attached some photos, and would like to know where to go with it. I am frightened to do it hap hazard, as Idont want to kill it. I have great blooms high up early in the year, but nothing from the lower parts, and only from about March to June. Any help would be appreciated thanks. Pip Swindo, UK
