I have seen some good videos on this on You Tube - it is worthwhile googling it! But none of the ones I watched said when to prune them! Any one know about that?

Choose strong young canes growing from the base of the bush and tie them down with soft ties so that they are as horizontal as possible. Smaller shoots will emerge from them and these will have roses on them. Prune these smaller shoots after they have finished flowering. Also prune any of the tied down horizontal shoots that are dead or damaged Good luck
