If allowed to grow freely in the garden, climbing roses can become inflexible and difficult to manage. If you have a small garden, you can grow climbing roses on fences, pergolas, and trellises. Climbing roses like Zepherine Drouhin have long stems, so you can simply hang the climbing stems over a trellis or pergola for an artistic look.


Rose bushes come in a wide variety of forms, from climbing roses to miniature rose plants that mostly bloom in early summer and fall. The species are adapted to modern gardens and typically bloom from spring to early summer. Rose species often have solitary flowers and bloom once during the growing season. How often a pink plant will bloom depends on the planting area and the particular variety of roses.


Roses will grow roots and stems first and then bloom on yearling shoots, so the season right after pruning can be one of the least blooming as your rose rebuilds stem structure. Depending on the structure your roses are growing on (like a long fence or a wide trellis), you may want to prune less or more.


If you plan to overdig your roses, be sure not to cut or damage the roots, as damaged plants have a high risk of dying or may take a long time to recover. The quality of the soil will determine how successful a rose grower is. Provide disease-resistant roses with plenty of sun, water, nutrient-rich soil, good air circulation, and regular pruning, and you can keep plants strong enough to withstand all but the worst infestations. Most roses need sun and heavy soil to thrive, but some do well in partial shade and poorer soil.


Some roses require less sun, so be sure to check the requirements of the plants before purchasing. Plant your roses in full sun - make sure they never get less than four hours of sunlight each day or you'll notice a decline in bloom. For better display of healthier flowers and plants, rose bushes should receive six to eight hours of sunlight per day. If rain does not provide weekly watering, water your rose with 4 to 5 gallons of water per week (more in dry climates).


There are two very important factors when growing roses to ensure you give them the best chance to thrive: first, make sure they are in the right growing conditions, and second, plant them in the right way. While it's tempting to fill your garden with the variety of roses you can grow, it's important to start your collection with a modest selection and gradually increase the number of roses as needed. Different roses have different growing needs, so choose roses that grow in the same way to make your gardening tasks manageable.


You can also grow a variety of old rose varieties such as Francis Dubreuil, Lady Banks or Yolanda d'Aragon. Look out for species known as shrub roses, landscape roses, or ground cover roses, which grow on multi-stemmed shrubs and produce many smaller but vibrant flowers over an extended period, sometimes from summer to fall. Although roses are fairly drought tolerant plants, they grow and bloom best in moist but not soggy soil.


Most varieties of roses are best planted in a sunny position, perhaps near a wall, trellis, or post. The best time to prune most roses is in early spring, before new growth begins.
