I moved into my house in the fall of 2008. There is one rose plant and I am not sure if I am treating it right. First of all, it is about 7 feet tall. It's pretty much a trunk (oh about 1-1.5" thick) for the first 4 or so feet, then the shoots start, and the lowest rose is probably a good 5' up the plant. It just doesn't look right to me. So, today, I went and pruned off the shoots that had roses on them last year, and I also pruned some additional branches and shoots. Did I do wrong? I am new to gardening. I'd love to make this plant look really healthy and have dozens of blossoms.
