Hi – I have an old climbing rose which hasn’t been pruned or trained on the trellis. It now has three very thick old woody vertical canes that are beyond bending to train across the trellis. It still has nice healthy growth and flowers but I want to train it so it doesn’t keep growing outwards. Not sure if I should take a punt and prune back the vertical canes hard and close to the ground and hope for some new vertical growth?

Cheers

Hi Francesca, Yes you can cut the very old woody vertical canes, you should be able to use this years growth as your new canes. Try and “rotate” the canes i.e. take an old one out that is being replaced by a new one, if you do this every year, then you will have a nice healthy plant every year.

Thanks the Palmers Team
