Climbing Rose

Posted: 10/08/2012 at 10:07

Haven't really been giving it anything specific up until now - we have other climbing roses (pink) in the garden that are doing really well - but they are older plants.  We have quite heavy clay soil.  Strangely we had a yellow standard rose in our garden which after the first year never flowered again and started to sprout shoots from the step and we eventually took it out.  We now have a 'thing' about yellow roses!!!!

Thanks Alina - yeah someone told us this and (fortunately the plant being quite young) we have retrained the branches.  A friend also suggested that it might need pottash as we have had a lot of rain this year

I have had a climbing rose (yellow coloured flowers) in the garden now for 2 years and have yet to get a flower.  Vigorous growth from it but just no flowers.  It is against a wall which receives a fair amount of sunshine.

I have a couple of Hebe plants which have become very leggy and I would like to prune them back.  Would this spoil the plant?  If not, when is the best time to prune please.

I have a eucalyptus bush which is just over a year old but has grown to about six feet but almost on one long stem.  I really want it to be more bushy.  Should I cut it back now?
