Overgrown rose bush
We moved house last year and have inherited a rose bush in the front garden. I have no idea what variety it is but I don’t think it’s had much care in the past.
It’s about 50 cm round but has grown to over 6ft tall; many of the branches are brown and woody looking whilst some are very green. It flowered in summer last year through to winter.
I would like to prune it back to a shorter height but as a novice gardener I’m not sure when the best time to do this is or how aggressive I can be with pruning. I have been told that it’s no longer the original rose that is flowering.
