SUPPORTING AND TRAINING A ROSE ON A WALL OR FENCE
Place the lowest straining wire 60cm from the ground, repeating every 30-45cm up the wall or fence, up to the established height of the rose. The span of the straining wires should cover the width you want the rose to fill. Use vine eyes every 1.5m along the length to hold the wire in place and stop it from sagging. Alternatively, support using a trellis attached to the wall and tie-in directly onto the trellis.
As the rose grows, encourage side shoots by fanning out the stems left and right into the available space. Tie in as you go, aiming to create good, even coverage.
