Pruning is one of the most important along with the subscriber for good flowering and prevent disease.
Pruning should be done in winter, cold depending on the area, we can prune in early winter or late, if we all danger of frost.
The rose bushes are very grateful, and accept almost any type of pruning. You can use three types of pruning, light, moderate and severe, depending on how short it is no longer shoots and the number of outbreaks.


Step 1: Detect Damaged Branches

First start by removing all dead branches, diseased or frozen. Remove the brown areas, until the area heals.

Step 2: Remove the Stems That Grow Weaker

We remove all stems that grow weak, never going to be strong and flourish. We also remove the stems that grow into the rosebush, and that favor air circulation and prevent the proliferation of fungi.
We seek to eliminate them as close to the base of the rose.

Step 3: Remove Stems That Cross

We remove stems that cross each other, leaving the stem stronger. In this way we avoid the friction between the branches, which ultimately damage the rose bush.

Step 4: Cut Above the Bud

We must cut above the bud. We will cut bevel, near the tip.
The bevel prevents water is deposited above the cut, so we avoid fungal attack.
At this point we're going to take over the branches, and the number of branches that we depend on the type of pruning you want to do.

Should be pruned every winter. A few years can make a lighter pruning, and other years to make a more drastic pruning.
The goal is to keep Rose in an order. Keep in mind that climbing roses are not pruned shrubs and roses.
