Very useful, Monty Dons tips really do work, especially pegging down a long branch of rambling rose. My 30 year old rambler covered the fence this year.

Very useful! I have been following this procedure for a couple of years and I am pleased to say that my Gypsy Boy has improved a lot! Thanks for the tips, Monty.
