For those who are concerned about pruning roses.

About 6 weeks ago I took my garden shears and hacked most of my roses down to about 10 inches high.

It didnt do any harm

Similar experiment at RHS Garden Wisley. The roses pruned with petrol hedge trimmers performed better (floriferously) over the formally trained specimens.
We have a fern in our garden that I used to take the lawnmower to each winter and it just grew back better than ever each year. Our lass then decided to extend the bed and I can't get the mower at it any more, it's still there but doesn't look as good as when I used to scalp it.
