The Q&A Archives: Climbing Rose

Question: I just bought 8 potted Lady Banks climing roses from Home Depo, how do I get them to grow on my fencing and around my trellises? They are small now, but I want them to cover my fence and trellise in time. Thanks.

Answer: You can weave the stems in and around the trellis and they will remain attached. If the fence is solid, you will need to run wires so you can weave the stems around. Once the canes and stems reach the top of the fence or trellis, they will be strong enough to support the plant and the plant will naturally climb up on itself. Best wishes with your roses!
