Jasmine requires more care. It is best trained high up a wall and allowed to fall forward. The wood to keep is the long, bright green stuff. Encourage new green growth by cutting out a proportion of the old stems entirely.
Climbing roses can be pruned on a replacement principle. If strong new stems arise near the base, cut back the older part of the stems above the point where the new shoot rises. Tie in new growth securely.
With wisteria, you can finish the job you should have started last July. Unwanted new growth should have been cut back by half. Now, you cut those same shoots back to within two buds of the point where the new growth started. It's a wobbly ladder job. Our wisteria keeps diving under the eaves into the roof space and I haul out yards of peaky-looking growth that has been wandering around under the tiles looking for the light.Reuse content
