Climbing Roses will be finishing flowering now. Cut out the old flower heads and prune out weaker shoots. Tie in and train on the most vigorous new shoots which will produce next year’s flowers.
Take cuttings now from plants which may not survive a colder winter so that they will grow on in the greenhouse and be ready for planting out again next Spring. A simple cost saving. Osteospermum and Argyranthemum are obvious choices.
