as my climbing roses have just about finished their flowering, and instead of climbing along the fence they are vertical so all the flowers were sky high! could I cut them back now and tie them in, or do I wait for the autumn or spring?



If the branches are not too rigid you can just re-train them by bending them down as low as possible and re-tying them to their support. This will encourage shoots to grow from the leaf joints all along the stem and not just at the top. Deadhead but don't cut back in case it's a repeat flowerer.
