    I need to prune a climbing rose and honeysuckle which have been growing unchecked for years. Any suggestions on what to do with them? I'm more concerned in not killing the rose :love30:.
    I've added some pictures. Thanks for any help :spinning:

      This might help, Rayla





      The Honeysuckle can be pruned back to a shape you like or prune each stem leaving about 3 buds or shoots on each of them.

        Thanks Armandii, these are great videos.
        I'll give it a go over the next couple of days. Wish me luck :)
