I have a large wooden frame I've been growing roses, clematis and wisteria to climb up. Please can you advise if I leave alone over winter or at anytime do I need to cut back. 

Thank you so much. Jane

     All need to be pruned according to normal principles.

    Roses are pruned in Spring. Wisteria pruned twice, once in August, once in February. Clematis.. it depends on type, a montana late in season after flowering, type 3 cut to ground in Spring.

    Do you know what types of rose and clematis you have?
