Planting climbing roses
Before you plant, get trellis, wires or other supports in place across the entire area you want your new rose to eventually cover.
Climbing roses prefer full sun, but will also grow well on east and westfacing fences. However, they will not be happy in overhead shade.
Most soils are suitable, although all will benefit from the addition of some well-rotted humus.
Prepare a large area of soil, making sure to remove any perennial weeds: your climbing rose is going to be in place for a long time and will develop an extensive root system.
Trellis should be in place prior to planting
