When should I prune my very large Hydrangeas, how much shall I take off, they are leggy and falling over. I noticed that my neighbour has recently pruned hers to about 2ft from the ground, I think she always does this and they have looked fantastic this year, short and compact and covered in flowers. Is it too late to do them now,

Thanks Dave,  we did remove the conifer last year and it did better than before. Its just long and leggy through trying to get some light. I will give it a light prune after flowering. I will leave the rose until spring.

Should I prune my standard rose Golden Wedding, its been in the ground for about 4 months and has had lots of roses on it and is in flower at the moment.  Also when do I prune a Camellia as its out of shape  because it used to be hidden behind a conifer and  has done its best to grow towards the light, its full of buds at the moment, is it next spring when I can prune it and  how much, is it the same principle as for other bushes.

I also love Hydrangeas and they make lovely long lasting cut flowers in the house, also look great when dried and can even be sprayed gold for Christmas and

My climbing rose had yellow leaves and they were covered in black spot, in fact it has been a problem this year with a lot of my roses. I bought a spray for black spot, used it  about a month ago and removed all the affected leaves, the rose, my rose now looks very sick and is not producing any flowers or new leaves, will it recover.
