I’ve got to tell you how much these videos have changed my rose filled life, starting with the one on pruning. My roses look better than they ever have thanks to you. Most of the 100+ came from you anyway. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Hi i bought a white rose bush years ago from a garden store and i didnt know what kind it was, and last year it started really growing and getting too long for where it is and i made the branches over the wall it was in front of. Can i buy a trellis now and tie the branches to it? Or am i too late to do anything? Thanks so much 🙂

No probs to buy a trellis now. Just set it up and start tying the rose in.

I have watched many of your videos and they are excellent. I just have one question. After espaliering my climbing Peach rose what kind of winter protection can I do (zone 5)

The main thing to remember is cold wind does roses in more than cold temperatures. So if you get a real cold snap you may want to cover it with burlap or something like that. You can also get frost cloths. Our forum would be a good place to ask this question as well. I can post a link here but it’s paulzimmermanroses-com-forum. Just replace the – with a /

Thanks for your very interesting videos. I’ve learned a lot from them on how to prune, peg and train climbing roses. In fact, I just bought a yellow climbing rose called “Souvenir Claudio Pernet” and will pillar it to a pole. I was wondering if the same rules apply (cutting the laterals and bending the canes horizontally or to 45°) also to Mandevillas. I have one whose flowers have in the past years been blooming only on top. Can you give me any tips on those? Thanks for your help!!! 🙂

I wish I could help but I really only know roses!

Thanks for the video. How many main cane do you leave on a 1-2 year old rose. I was told to only leave 1 but I see you have many. Any help?

AshdownRoses @ 12:01 pm #

On a young rose I’d leave as many as you can. Only start cutting them out when they get older and are replaced by new ones. Generally that will start in the 4th-5th year.

Leave as many healthy ones as you can. The more canes, the fuller the plant, the more rose blossoms.

Thank you so much for this very informative video! Reading various sources and just looking at photos was helpful, but no so much as your very clear descriptions and great visuals. You’ve taken the mystery out of this process for a newbie at climbing roses. My rose is only in its 2nd year, so I am still waiting for it to really get going! Thanks again!

Hi, Watching your video is really great.. very informative! I have one question, how do you manage the pest in the roses, like larvae? They really bothered me… is insecticidal soap is worth a try?

AshdownRoses @ 11:49 am #

I manage them by creating an environment that brings in beneficial insects. Because of this I don’t have to use sprays. But, insecticidal soaps will help
