Rose Arch

Posted: 28/12/2016 at 16:55

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

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

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??

Very true, ive bought plants off ebay before and most have thrived. It's just such a big purchase for me and would be put off if they turned out to be duds. all part of the fun i guess.
