Tolerant of poorer soils - Patio Roses - Climbing Roses
Climbing roses are ideal for growing against a wall of a house and often produce large shapely flowers.
Unlike many ramblers, most climbers will also repeat flower, providing colour throughout the summer months. Shorter climbers can also be grown in pots making them great for patios and smaller gardens. We recommend planting Clematis alongside climbing roses to give the effect of a longer flowering period. Also, by choosing colours that complement each other an otherwise dull and lifeless area can be transformed into an eye-catching focal point. It must be remembered that climbers will take two to three years to become fully established.
