How do I rotate a 90% gradient in the node editor without rotating the object (see attached picture). Can I do this in the space properties editor or I probably need to add another node?

All I want to do here is to keep the colours exactly the same, but 90% rotated in horizontal direction.

You use the Mapping Node, add it with Shift-A>Vector>Mapping. Don't forget to add the texture cordinate into the mapping node, it will not work otherwise.

You will then need to tweak the Y and Z values. To get 90o You will need to set the Y one to 90o

Here is it at work:

    $\begingroup$ Thank you, great help, adding the Texture Coordinate is very important too, I think you should edit your answer to add that, I wouldn't know that if I hadn't checked your images. $\endgroup$ – Georges Mar 23 '16 at 14:51

Add a Mapping Node (Add-->Vector-->Mapping) and place it between Texture Coordinate and Gradient Texture nodes. enter image description here

Change the rotation factor of the Mapping node. enter image description here
