PLANT A BEAUTIFUL
Climbing roses are an excellent way of bringing height and a feeling of abundance to the garden. Grow them on obelisks, brighten a patio container or a garden border. Whatever you're looking for you'll find them at Webbs, including David Austin roses. By planting roses you'll add fragrance, colour and an abundanance of flowers to your outdoor space. If you're not sure how to plant, simply watch the video and follow our step-by-step guide.
Now you're ready to follow our simple planting guide...
1. Add some grit to the base of a large pot (with drainage holes in the base). Top up with John Innes No. 3 compost.
2. Slip the rose out of its pot and plant in the centre of the new pot. Bury the raised bump (graft union) on the stem.
3. You can add a clematis as a companion for extra colour. Plant beside the rose, with the lower stems below the surface.
4. Carefully lower a decorative frame over the plants, making sure you do not damage the roots in the process.
5. When the frame is in place, carefully remove the plants' cane supports. Then tie the stems to the frame with twine.
6. Add a few nemesias around the edge of the container. Firm in all plants and water well.
Look forward to watching your rose bloom and mature over the coming years.
