I have a climbing rose that is now about 15' high up against south facing wall. I have 3 good size 'stems' and then it branches out to about 20 feet.
The trouble is i have no growth below the 15'. I am hesitant to cut of even one of the main stems but is this the only way i will promote a new stem to grow?
Im guessing the reason why i have no growth in the first 15 feet is that there was a honeysuckle there which i cut back hard last year as it was a tangled mess.
Ill try and upload a photo in a bit
