How do I prune this thing?

We moved to the Memphis area four months ago and your show was one of the very first we heard. We were moving in on a Saturday morning and had a radio set up on the counter to listen for the weather.

Here is my question. There is a rose bush here that the owner planted 15 years ago, they said it was called a "Mr. Lincoln". It is so fragrant and has the most beautiful big red blooms.

The problem is that the plant has looks to have gotten out of hand, if it were on a trellis it would reach the eves of the house. We have never lived in the south and honestly, we don't know a thing about gardening! How do I prune this? And the follow up question is when do I prune it? Can I do it now or do I have to wait until fall?

Right after grape planting, merely tie this stalks upwards as they create to produce a good going up the increased. Enable the increased to achieve this peak you would like. Within this point, merely nice looking this plant, shaping out almost any broken development.

Prune your rose back after it blooms. This is for climbing roses. You can also take out one or two old canes to keep the rose healthy.

Add DR. Earths rose food and spray with Seaweed and Worm Casting Tea through out the growing season!
