More about 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’.
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, prune 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.
