The Q&A Archives: Time For Pruning Climbers

Question: When should I prune my climbing roses?

Answer: Climbing roses bloom on new stems that grow on old wood. Pruning them back in late winter will encourage new, flowering stems. If you don't prune, most of the new growth will be at the ends of the main canes instead of lateral stems that produce flowers.
