Climbing Rose - Rosa

Roses have probably been one of the best known and most planted plant varieties for hundreds if not thousands of years. Over the years they have undergone many crossing and experimental processes by various well known botanists. From as early as the early twentieth century, the first patents were granted for new varieties that were developed by these botanists. The rose, particularly the red variety has much symbolic value in different cultures. Even in ancient times they were used to decorate temples and palaces. According to Greek-Roman mythology, the first red roses originated from the blood of Adonis due to his love for Aphrodite. Roses were said to be white only until that time. Red roses are still known as the symbol for love.

How do I care for my climbing rose?
The climbing rose grows long branches that you can lead in the direction of growth that you want. It is best to grow your rose along a trellis. Small-flowering roses generally grow faster than the large-flowering varieties. At Perfect Garden we only have large flowering varieties in our assortment. We have deliberately chosen these because they flower for longer periods and they are also easier to maintain.

For the first two years it is best not to prune your rose and to let it climb freely. After this you can prune it right back every other year. You don’t need to do this very precisely and can cut it right back to about fifteen centimetres above the ground. This prevents the plant from become bare at the bottom. Pruning is best done in autumn or early spring. If you want your rose to have more beautiful and longer flowering blooms, it is also advisable to regularly remove its dead flowers.

To ensure a healthy rose that will flower well, you need to feed it regularly. This can be done with special Rose fertilizer or standard NPK mix. This also makes your rose less prone to common rose diseases such as aphids, mildew and blackspot.

When will my rose produce its flowers?
Our selected roses start to flower in June and keep flowering until the first frosts in October or November. To stimulate blooms, we recommend removing the old and dead flowers. This will give you very long periods of being able to enjoy your beautiful flowers!
How many roses should I plant per metre of trellis, fence or wall?
How many roses you plant depends entirely on how fast you want to have the wall or fence fully covered. We recommend two to four plants per metre of trellis. Usually this will ensure that you have a beautifully covered fence or wall in about two years.
