Climbing Roses

CLIMBING ROSES

Climbing roses are distinct from most ramblers. In that they tend to have larger blooms, the ability to repeat flower and have stouter growth. Their use in the garden for adding height is unsurpassed coming in a variety of colours and sizes. The stronger growing varieties are often seen covering walls, fences, arches and pergolas, whilst shorter varieties can be trained around poles and tripods to form ‘pillars’. Our collection includes many of the older Noisette, Tea, Hybrid Tea, Boursaults and Bourbons and  also a  good range of more modern varieties, many are highly fragrant which is always a bonus.

A good short variety is pink Zepherine Drouhin; a recurrent favourite often seen as a scented focal point. Medium varieties are more versatile, the prime example Etoile de Hollande can have many uses. Whilst a good tall variety is Cecile Brunner Climber often seen trained around door entrances.

All climbers require support and it is essential they are well tied to their structures. They are best trained horizontally at first to prevent any legginess and encourage a spreading habit.

Pruning Guide – Once established they are pruned by reducing side shoots to two or three buds of the main stem and tying in any new long growths in a horizontal fashion during September.
