Unlike most other plants in your garden that bear flowers on newly grown shoots, the flowers of the Lady Banks' rose grow on old branches. This is the reason why you should never prune the plant before spring, which is the flowering season for the plant. Once the plant has flowered in spring for 4 weeks or so, you can safely prune the plant to allow new shoots to develop. The plant has a tendency to spread its branches far and wide, and so it is necessary that you prune it often to keep it in shape and confine it to the area within which you want it to grow. Remember that pruning the Lady Banks' rose is essential for its growth and well-being.
Keeping the cuttings in a zip bag with a little moist soil until they form roots is another easy cutting propagation method, the only inconvenient is that it may be more difficult to transplant since those roots are very fragile and if broken during transplantation, you might lose that plant.
Group 2: Alberic Barbier, Albertine, New Dawn, Paul's Scarlet Climber, and Veilchenblau form Group 2. These differ from Group 1 only in the position of the new canes. In this case, the new canes grow half way up the old ones, not at ground level. The plant is pruned after flowering, by removing old wood, up to the new growth.
The ideal time for pruning is determined by the type and species of the rose plant, and the geographical location in which it is growing. In general, most rose pruning is done in the spring, with a signal like the blooming of the forsythia. In the absence of forsythia, the swelling of leaf buds on your rose bushes can be another good indication. In short, they should be pruned just before growth starts, in March or early April. This is when the bumps on the canes get larger and reddish in color. However, heirloom roses (old) and some climbers that produce blooms on the previous year's wood are the noted exceptions to this rule. They should be pruned after they bloom.
