Q.Should I Prune My Rose?

Zone Bournemouth, Dorset, United Kingdom | hannah_5000 added on May 3, 2020 | Answered

I have a climbing rose ‘Generous Gardener’ which was planted in our garden last summer. I’ve been trying to find advice online about how to look after my rose in it’s early years so I end up with a strong climber, covering our wall. I have been pruning any stems that are crossing or growing away from the wall – is this the right thing to do or should I be completely leaving it alone for it’s first few years? I know not to prune it once it’s finished flowering until it’s fully established but am I right making sure there aren’t any crossing stems and focusing it on growing against the wall? Note – we haven’t trained it yet but will be purchasing the materials to do so this week!
