Hi, I have a David Austin rose called 'Golden Anniversary' which is already in flower. Is it too early? And will it be okay flowering this early? I am pretty sure it is doing this because I was too scared to prune too much as I didn't want to kill the rose.  I would really appreciate some advice on this.

Thank you 


Enjoy it Kelly. What could go wrong


Don't panic! I have a rose in bloom and so does someone else on the forum. If it wants to bloom, then let it.

Oh thank you everyone for your advice. I will definatly just relax and enjoy

Don't worry.  It's all about pruning.  Last year one of my climbing roses that grows against a south facing cream wall had it's 1st flower on 26th Feb! I'd pruned it quite early in October (I have a lot to do and not much spare time to do it).  It still flowered all summer.  Deadhead back to 2 leaf axils on the flowering stems and feed after each flush.
