Planting David Austin Climbing Roses is a straightforward process, and with the right care, these climbers can transform your garden into a blooming paradise. Before you start, it's crucial to prepare the site adequately. Select a location that receives at least six hours of sun each day, preferably in well-drained soil. If you're planting multiple roses, leave a distance of about 1.8 to 3.6 metres between each plant to allow for proper air circulation.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's wide and deep enough to accommodate the root ball of the rose. Place the rose into the hole, ensuring that the bud union (the swollen area from which the branches grow) is level with or slightly above the ground. Backfill the hole with a mixture of garden soil and well-rotted compost or manure, and water thoroughly.
After planting, it's crucial to provide your climbing roses with the right care. Water regularly, especially during dry spells, and feed your roses with a balanced rose fertiliser in early spring and midsummer to promote robust, healthy growth. Prune in late winter or early spring to keep the plant tidy and encourage more flowers.
Training your climbing roses is an important aspect of their care. Initially, train the main stems of your climbing rose horizontally, as this encourages the growth of more flowering side shoots. As the plant matures, allow some of the new growth to remain upright to give your plant height and reach.
Dealing with pests and diseases is an inevitable part of rose care, but David Austin Climbing Roses have been bred for their disease resistance, making them easier to manage. Regular inspections will help you spot any issues early and take prompt action.
