#ProPlantTips For Care

Provide Roses with full sun so they can bloom their best, favoring the drying power of the morning sun! Plant in an enriched, organic, well-draining soil throughout all of USDA zones 5-10. Iceberg doesn't expect much other than regular watering and yearly fertilizer! Although a 3-4 inch deep layer of mulch keeps the foliage cleaner, the roots insulated, and keeps moisture in the ground more consistently.

Be patient when you first get it, as it might take one year for it to acclimate to your garden. Once it does though, watch out - the second season will start a show that won't stop! Provide moderate, yet consistent moisture throughout the year, but keep your Rose free of soggy soil.

Don't try to confine this hearty grower. It loves having free reign and rewards you for years with more and more blooms every season!

How to Prune and Train Climbing Roses

Pruning should not be done during the first two to three years, since Climbing Roses need time to build flowering Rose canes. These structural canes will grow thicker for several years before it is time to replace them.

Spring Pruning and Structural Rejuvenation

Remember that spring pruning is most limited to removing broken branches, and dead tips or correcting the structure of the Climbing Roses. If you remove long canes and side branching you will be removing the first set of June flowers.

  1. Prune Roses in early spring just as you see new buds beginning to swell.
  2. Remove any dead, diseased, or damaged branches.
  3. Identify several new, younger, more vigorous canes to become the new structural foundation of your beautiful Climbing Rose.
  4. Remove the fattest, oldest canes out at the soil level, if possible and right after the first set of flowers finishes. Those canes will be replaced with new shoots that develop from the base. As these new, rapidly produced shoots elongate, you will want to direct, train, and tie them into the place you would like them to develop.

Summer Maintenance and Pruning

Horizontal branches produce the most flowers. Prune these secondary canes after flowering, because Climbing Roses bloom on last year's canes (old wood).

  1. Cut your secondary canes down to 6 - 8 inches above a bud after the first flush of flowers has finished.
  2. Trim the secondary canes back at 90 to 45-degree angles.
  3. Keep your structural support canes in place.

In colder regions it may be more difficult to maintain Climbing Roses, so choosing your planting site is important.

Winter protection is best for Roses grown in zones 7 and colder. Mulch is your best, more natural way to overwinter Roses by mounding the dormant canes in late fall. Don't fall prune, rather instead wait until spring to remove any dead or diseased branches. It is virtually disease-free so that nasty black spot isn't a problem.
