I have recently brought and planted up a climbing rose to go up the wall of my cottage and make it look a bit like a story book cottage! It is doing quite well and flowering nicely but I am new to gardening and didn't really consider putting a trellis up behind it first. As the rose is planted in a container so I could probably have a shift around and get it attached to something now... Is this advisable or will it attach to the wall on it's own? Also, I know that this sounds rather naieve, but what happens to my climbing rose once it grows ABOVE the trellis- will I have to buy a bigger frame and change it round or will the rose just naturally continue growing up the wall?
