I know how to prune bush roses buy pruning to an outside bud and removing any branches crossing the centre of the bush, to keep the bush open. However when it comes to climbing roses I am stuck as to how you get lovely flowering long trailing branches and the pruning of them so as not to shorten these branches. Can you help me please as I am pruning at the moment ?

Roses flower on new seasons growth and climbiing roses vary in their vigour. Mostly these climbers are pruned to shape as a priority and can be cut back quite hard. Feed the rose to encourage vigorous new shoots which will give you the flower and tie the shoots to your frame to keep the growth where you want it. Obviously the removal of the growth tip will encourage side growth….and more flower.
