Any advice on pruning uneven growth on Austin rose Queen of Sweden please?
As you can see from these pics it really is growing unevenly.

On plant Rosa

Try cutting back the longer shoots to the height of the shorter ones when it's finished flowering. Then in March prune all the stems hard, down to an outward facing bud. Austins give the max height as 3 1/2 feet, so yours is impressive!

Thanks Steragram, part of it thinks it's a climber! I'll do as you recommend:-)
