How To Build A Rose Trellis

What is the best climbing rose for a trellis?

A: David Austin’s Rambling Rector is a beautiful rose with a great fragrance. It has large double flowers on strong stems. It grows to about 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide, so it will fill your trellis nicely.

Q: I have two climbing roses that are very healthy, but they do not bloom much. What can I do to get them to bloom?

A: Climbing roses need plenty of sun and well-draining soil. They also need good air circulation and water when the weather is hot, but they should be allowed to dry out between watering during the summer months. Climbers also require a trellis or support structure on which they can grow up and over.

When choosing a trellis for climbers, make sure it is strong enough to support the weight of the plant. If you don’t have an existing structure for your climbers, consider building one from wood or metal posts and wire fencing (either chicken wire or welded wire). The posts should be at least 8 feet apart so that you can attach the wire fencing between them at least 2 feet off the ground. Make sure your support structure is sturdy enough to hold all of your plants in place as they grow taller each year.

You may want to add some kind of brace system between each post if you are growing more than one vine on one trellis so that they don’t pull each other down as they grow taller.
