Prune the climbing rose in the spring. Prune away any dead or protruding branches. Prune the climbing rose in the spring. Put the climbing rose in a sunny spot. Water generously after planting. After the plant has grown, you only need to water it once a week. If it has rained, you don't need to give it extra water, but when there are dry spells, give it a bit more water. The roses are grown from cuttings. This makes them winter-hardy, disease-resistant and they bloom all summer long! The rose cutting is super strong and highly resilient.

We only supply A-Quality rose bushes (as per the 'European Nursery Stock Association'), with 3 strong branches.
Soak these pot grown rose bushes in a bucket of lukewarm water for half an hour before planting. Prepare a large hole, loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork and improve poor soil with the addition of compost and granulated cow manure. Remove the rose bush from its pot and plant at the correct depth in the hole. One centimeter deeper than the top of root ball is sufficient. Fill the hole with the improved soil, heel well in and water generously. A spot in full sun or partial shade is necessary for an abundance of flowers.
Bakker also supplies ramblers as cascading roses. The intention is that you plant 1 or 2 ramblers together and tie them into a pyramid shaped climbing frame to get a veritable cascade of blooms. Three or four canes tied at the tops above the newly planted roses should suffice. The ramblers will do the rest and bring you a fabulous cascade of flowers. This works in pots and planters too. This combination will work best in full sun, whether in the garden or in pots.
An annual pruning will only strengthen your cascade and keep it in shape.
Deadheading and minor pruning back to the first five fingered leaf, will encourage repeat flowering. Ramblers require a lot of feeding for abundant flowering so fertilise your rambling rose regularly. Use granulated cow manure around the base in the winter, use a mixed organic fertiliser in the spring and use special rose feed in July (see the pack for correct dosage).
Pruning rambling roses
A rambling rose needs prunning annually. Leave several long twigs and tie them in - preferably horizontally. Remove all side growth in February back to 3 buds. Older shrubs can have their old wood cut right back now and then, but only in the summer. This will rejuvenate the plant. Pull any suckers away from the roots. The roses we supply have already been pruned so will not require any pruning before they are 18 months old.
Bakker rambling roses are among the very best and prettiest of ramblers, thanks to their very lovely flowers. Most of them, lightly scented, appear right through to the first frosts. The (usually) dark green and shiny foliage looks so healthy. Your garden will look just fabulous with a rose arch covered with your new rambling rose.
Roses are of course classified under Rosaceae.
