Can anybody help my wife. She has a climbing rose,pictured above, which has got way out of control, and she is at a loss as how to prune it. All the books she has read tell her to cut right back to just above a bud, or growing point. The trouble is that this particular plant has not got any below about 3'6". It's a good flowing plant with lots of blooms, but the're all at the top. It is also one of her favourites, so she is reluctant to lose it. We think it's called "Golden Showers", but we can't be certain.
