If I keep pinching out the tips on a climbing rose bush, will it bush out and reduce it to a more manageable height with many more buds ?



Not necessarily, depends on the variety of climbing rose. They have distinct growth habits, some growing up relatively straight with few leaves towards the base, and therefore suitable for a pillar or narrow trellis archway, right up to others that will cover a large wall from top to bottom and side to side. Do you know what variety yours is?
