the work rose bush
I’m new to all these flowers so I’ve been picking up tip’s from people and reading a lot of your tips and comments!
I’ve been trying to sort out the work garden so the gentlemen can use the rear access for shop takes.
we have a rose bush, that when I found it was just five or six long thorny stems. (unfortuantly I didn’t take a photo then duh)
I had to cut it back so the chaps wouldn’t snag their uniforms or themselves, I cut it back to about a foot high back in March time and over the past few months it’s sprung back to life!
Lots of nice new green shoots and it’s got really tall again which makes me think it’s a climbing rose?
The only problem is that it’s got so big again and I didn’t want to cut anymore of it off incase it wouldn’t flower so today I constructed some sort of trellis/ climbing frame for it!
It took a couple of hours and looks a bit lame (it’s my first attempt and it’s not easy fighting round the back of a rose bush!) but it is nice and fixed to the wall so fingers crossed it wont blow over in the wind and rain! Lol.
Then once I was getting it fixed to the frame I notice it had some creepy crawley’s munching on it :(
I put a question on here about them and thank you to Louise1 and Bamboo, I now know what they are and how to get rid of them!
I really hope it flowers this year but I also heard for a climbing rose it should have started at least to bud? which it hasn’t :(
I guess now I’m just really confused about the poor thing, as I said I’m new to all this!
I hope it like’s it’s new climbing frame tho!
If you’ve got any suggestions I’d love to hear them!
