Rangitikei, New Zealand
I planted a Gloire de Digon climbing rose a few weeks ago, & it has done very well, with quite a few blooms on it. Still too small to train up the lattice fence yet, but it has sprouted what look like two suckers which have been growing like crazy & are now about twice the height of the actual rose. I am sure they are suckers, as stems are a dark reddish colour & a bit rubbery to the touch. I am sure I should cut these two suckers right down, but wanted to check with you guys first.
