How do I go about training a climbing rose?
Climbers can be trained by weaving canes through the openings in a trellis or similar structure. Small, tender canes can be easily moved, while larger ones may need to be tied in place. Use jute twine or plant ties designed for this purpose.
Wait until after spring flowering to prune climbing roses. Remove any dead canes and prune those that are growing outward from the main group. Continue training new growth as it occurs.
