Mine is about 15 years old and needs almost no pruning. What would you like to accomplish with pruning?

I suspect this is still a fine time to do so, as many British gardeners like to spring prune once the plants wake up from dormancy...they figure the plant can heal the wound better/quicker, with less chance of infection cp. doing it in the dead of winter.

All I ever do is remove suckers, and trim back the weeping stuff so it's away from the ground.

In full bloom now, it looks great!
