Trimming back thornless blackberry plants

My thornless blackberry plants have produced some very long canes, some of which have rooted, and some which are freestanding. Should I cut back the freestanding canes, and if so, how far? Also, those canes which have rooted, will they produce fruit? Really enjoyed the berries this year! Heck of a lot easier than picking the wild berries, but that is an annual tradition I must attend!

Climbing roses die off

I planted climbing rose bushes last year, they both grew, one did much more growth reaching up to the top of my trellis. Both bloomed beautiful and looked healthy. I was surprised to find this spring that last years canes all died and although the bushes sent out new growth I was wondering if you have any suggestions to keep the shoots healthy so that my arbor can be full of blossoms instead of having to wait for the new growth to mature? I am new to growing roses so any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you- Patty
