Initially i would put up a wooden arch way to train it to but eventually the Wood will rot away, im hoping that the rose would, by then, support it self and be free standing
Sounds exactly like i imagined. wood doesnt last forever and those cheap metal tube arches are worthless, hence the idea of a self supporting arch. thanks for the push buttercup (i keep toying with the idea but then get put off incase ... xyz. Heres hoping !!)
Is it possible to train a climbing rose (New Dawn specifically) into a free standing arch ? Much like an apple arch/tunnel? Perhaps a better question would be how old can a rose cane get before it stops producing flowering buds? If you trained a main frame (eg an arch), could you keep deadheading/cutting back to the old frame? Or would it stop flowering? Hope this makes sense to someone on here
Sounds like you're not
So are these seed companies selling named perennials a big con?
Thanks nut, that makes brilliant sense. i guess it makes sense why plants are priced at what they are, especially named pernnials
hello!! will Nepeta Fassennii grow true to seed? Or Campanula lactiflora? I keep reading that named perennials wont come true. Many thanks
Does anybody know a good supplier of bare root hardy Geraniums? Ideally not at an extorinate rate like T&M and the like charge.
thanks all for the replies. Hedges Direct are selling similar size bare root plants but for £1.30 ish more per plant. I did message the seller and they said that they had purchased too many when planting their hedge last year and had planted these spare plants while they found a place for them but decided they didnt need them hence the sale. Thoughts gardeners??
Its for 35 plants nut
