A climbing rose is a beautiful solution for an ugly fence or wall. The rose covers the view and also smells wonderful. In this article we explain you step-by-step how to approach it.
Which climbing rose do you choose?
Buying a climbing rose that grows against a wall or fence is a beautiful, rich sight. Choose a color that you like and that goes well with the environment. Climbing roses come in all colors; white, red, orange, purple and champagne. In addition to the color, you can choose from a climbing rose with large flowers (large-flowered) or small flowers, the latter we callrambler roses. Finally, you can choose a scented rose or not. You can check the options in the menu on our website.
How many climbing roses do you need?
The number of roses you need depends on how much patience you have. Do you want to cover the surface quickly? Then plant the climbing roses closer together. As a rule of thumb for a dense cover, we recommend planting a climbing rose every 50 centimeters.
This is how you plant a climbing rose
Planting a rose is easy. The most important thing is that you choose a place that gets at least four hours of sun per day. Roses need sun and the more sun a rose gets, the faster it grows. Do not dig the hole too close to the wall or fence. The soil there is often poor and you run the risk of the rose becoming dry. We will explain it to you in detail in our planting instructions.
Training a climbing rose
You get the most beautiful image if you guide the branches of the climbing rose horizontally, approximately 30 centimeters apart. Do not prune the rose in the first few years, but let it grow vigorously. You will find all information about pruning climbing roses on our website. Do you want immediate results?
