Sometimes, despite the care, a climbing rose, instead of forming a lush and uniform bush, turns into a plant whose flowers are only at the top. What is the reason? Why does a climbing rose not want to become a delightful living wall covered with buds? Let's try to answer these questions.
The problems begin with the wrong pinning of the rose and the formation of a bush. Remember: the more the stems of a climbing rose are in a horizontal position, the more it blooms. In contrast, stems that grow from the root form the structure of the bush, but do not bloom. It is the lateral branches that bloom in different directions from the main stem.
If they want to achieve abundant flowering of climbing roses, then the bush is fixed on the trellis in a horizontal position or close to the angle of 45 degrees. This stimulates the rose to release more flowering shoots.
For a small arch, one bush is enough that will smoothly intertwine it from one side to the other. For a wider arch, two shrubs are allowed on opposite sides.
Do not forget about a small penumbra from the trellis for roses - so they will feel much better on a hot summer day. Watering should be moderate, and spray on a hot day can be several times. Also do not forget to trim the flowering buds to stimulate more active re-flowering.
