The Q&A Archives: Pegging Roses

Question: I have recently began planting roses and I've tried to read as much info as possible. One item that comes up quite regularly is how to peg roses. But my question is...WHY do you peg Roses?

Answer: Some of the vigorous, older varieties of roses can make effective ground covers. This is accomplished by securing the ends of the canes to the ground with U-shaped wire stakes or pegs, hence the term "pegging".The canes will form gentle arches, and should bloom along their entire length.
