The Main Rose Garden
This is a vigorous climber with an arching habit, shiny, mid-green leaves and produces pale pink, double, highly scented flowers from summer through to autumn. It can tolerate a wide range of soils and is hardy enough to be grown on a shaded wall or in exposed positions. As a climbing rose, it is best pruned from late autumn to early spring.
Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil that does not dry out, in full sun or partial shade. Climbers may repeat bloom. Climbing roses are not self-clinging and need supports of trellis or horizontal wires to which the shoots can be tied. Prune early to remove winter damage and dead wood. Prune after flowering (late autumn/winter) to shape and keep their size in check. If the plant is heavily congested, cut out any really old branches from the base to promote new growth. They will benefit from a mulch at this time. Regularly dead head.
