Summertime pruning for climbing roses

8 years ago


I've got a climbing rose on my balcony that I've trained onto a trellis and, as expected, this spring, it shot all sort of laterals with flowers on them. So far so good. As the flowers are starting to wither away I don't really know what to do with them to get new flowers later in the year. I've read online that I should cut them, but I don't know how far down - should I only cut the flower, should I cut the lateral from where it springs from the main stem, or a little above the main stem?

(Sorry if I botched any terminology, English is not my first language)
