A balcony-grown Teasing Georgia pruning

I don't have too much experience with roses, therefore I ask your advice.

This is my climbing Teasing Georgia rose in its second year. I grow it on trellis at our balcony. My zone is 8a. I pruned it yesterday, but because I'm a novice, can you please look and tell, if I did everything correctly or I have to prune more?

    To achieve a beautiful Valentines Day heart shape requires just 4 more little snips; you’re almost there.

    Disclosure: I am no expert.

    I wouldn’t cut any more. It looks good. Give her some good rose tone sice that’s a very large rose normally In the ground, I expect you will get lots of growth this year.

    Yes it looks good !! Now sit back and enjoy. It’s one of my favorite roses !

    Rifis it would make a neat heart if only it wasn’t such a vigorous grower!

    I don't cut back my climbers in the first 3 years, I just let them grow free. This info might help you: https://www.finegardening.com/article/got-young-climbing-roses-let-em-grow

    Thank you very much for your opinions.

    Yes, keeping the heart shape would be impossible. The rose is evil. Very vigorous.
