Teaching a rose to climb

Posted: 24/06/2012 at 15:16

Yes. Lokelani, mine is the Gertrude Jeyyll from David Austen. I did not know how much it knows what to do but I am getting the picture now.

I have a hydrangea and it seems to know what to do by itself so that is why I was getting into a tizz so thank you Welshonion for telling me to tie it in.

I am looking into frames in a catalogue. In the meantime today I have a bud that you can see is clearly a vivid pink.

 

Many thanks for the tips.

Teaching a rose to climb

My Gertrude rose was planted about 2 months ago and is about 50 cms high already and has some buds and the colour can be seen easily.

It was planted about 50 cms away from the fence but is making no attempt to climb.

What do I do?  Will it grab the fence or do I have to train it?

Can I simply cut it down and have a rase bush instead?

See my previous line ""It says on the packet to pant..." I meant "plant" but the edit button will not work for me

I planted allium sativum size 1 in pots of compost (because of lead in heavy clay soil) on 28th March and the leaves are very long and falling over. I have never planted much at all and this is a first for me. It says on the packet to pant February to May so I dont think it will get a cold season. Also it says on the packet to thin to 5 inches apart. I thought many would die but the whole lot have survived. Do I have to thin them out?
