Hi everyone. A relative has a climbing rose (we assume & not a rambler) that hasn't flowered for about 5 years until this year.
The flowers have appeared on growth high up the 'main stem' on laterals of only about 4 nodes. However, other lateral growth next to the flowering stems have between 8-10 nodes which show no sign of flowers.
I appreciate this is a complicated area with all the different types of roses etc, but any simple explanation/advice on how we can prune it to get consistent flowering would be much appreciated.
