I have a very overgrown rambling rose in my back garden growing along the side which flowers lovely. I want to put up a fence along with bringing back this rose under control. Is it okay to prune this rose now and how far can i prune back without killing it off ?

A rambling rose can be pruned if necessary now and you can cut as hard as you like.

But it might be possible not to cut very hard and to lean the rose out of the way, it being flexible, while the fence is put up and the rose can be put back in place.
