Plant­ing climb­ing roses

Amateur Gardening - - Pick Of The Very Best -

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
