carrots not long enough

That's normal for a Nantes -  up to a maximum of 6 inches - they're an early cropping carrot - for a larger maincrop carrot try Autumn King  http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/plants/plant_finder/plant_pages/8692.shtml

I think I'd cut it back in early spring.  

If I can find mine in amongst the alpina I'll cut it back to some strong buds around late Feb, weather permitting.

ClImbing rose

The majority of climbing roses bloom on wood produced in the previous year, so cutting all canes down to the ground means that you will lose a season's blooms.

Please watch the video I linked to above - it is a simple explanation of how to train, prune and control climbing roses  and get blooms all over the plant.
