How do I prune a climbing rose?

lynnetteJanuary 1, 2013

Climbers should not be prune for three years so that they can put out tall canes. The little pruning is required appart from the removal of dead or very old wood plus dried out tips. Lateral branches on wood which has flowered can be cut back under the blooms to three inches. If the climber is outgrowing its alloted space then these canes can be cut back to fit.
