Just restarted gardening as my hobby. Hoping to turn the front garden which is in the town Centre into something special. Help may be required.

Can anyone advise me on this rose, im not sure if i should let it grow, or prune the taller shoots to keep it compact, whats the best way to get the most flowers ? Im not good with roses.

I would chop the tall bit off but if it’s got nice buds on I’d let it flower first.....(this is not an expert opinion, just mine) 😆😆🌹

If you prune the top bud it will look more bushy. 👍 I found that it's best to leave as much growth as possible in the first year after planting because HT roses establish roots over 2-3 years and if you prune it too hard it will look really bare. They really start to flower properly in their 3 year (depends if you bought bareroot or potted, potted might start to flower properly quicker). I find that you need to be really patient with roses but they get better with age. Like peonies.

Probably just trim it lightly then 😊 Mine tends to flower June/July and then September/October. Keep meaning to get a floribunda rose to fill the late July/ August gap.
