How do you grow roses on a wall?

Plant the rose 8″ (20cm) away from the wall your hole should be 16″ (40cm) in diameter with the rose in the centre. Place the rose in the middle of the area you would like it to cover, fanning the stems out either side. For fences, avoid planting against the post due to the concrete in the ground.

How do you train a rose bush to a wall?

Use fencing wire, stretched taught between tensioned screws fixed into the wall or fence and spaced 200mm apart.

As the rose grows the main canes should be bent horizontal (while stems are soft and pliable) and fixed to the wires.

Can you train a shrub rose to climb?

Climbing roses come in all sizes, ranging from 1 to 2 feet (0.30 to 0.61 m) tall to 15 to 20 feet (4.6 to 6.1 m) or more.
