Pruning Espaliered Rose

Postby bobosborne » Sun Jul 01, 2012 2:11 pm

Hi. I have a climbing rose which I trained into an espalier 2 years ago. I am about to prune it and am uncertain how to cut the verticle shoots from the horizontal branches. Do I cut them back level with the branch and as such promote new growth from the horizontal branch or do I select appropriate shoots and cut them back to a bud and remove other unwanted shoots?
