If you have a rambling rose that is outgrowing its space, August is the time to prune it. In this short clip, Monty Don shows you how to tackle these prickly, vigorous, but glorious roses, as he sets to work trimming back the arching stems of his ‘Paul’s Himalayan Musk’, now that flowering has finished. He also explains how to tell the difference between a rambler and a climber, and why they each need pruning at different times.
