Climbing roses take a little extra attention, but with patience your efforts will be richly rewarded.  Here’s how to get the best out of your climbing rose efforts:

LOCATION:  Most roses prefer loose, well-drained soil and will bloom best if they get at least six hours of full sun per day.

WATER & FOOD:  For the first two years water climbing roses deeply and regularly.  During the first year feed them lightly with a balanced liquid plant food (12-12-12) in late May and again in mid-July.  In year two, feed with ½ cup of a complete granular fertilizer around the base of the plant in late February.

TRAINING & PRUNING:  Rose canes don’t actually “climb” like vines do, so you’ll need to tie the canes to sturdy supports with twine, heavy-gauge plastic ties or plastic-coated wire.  It takes several years to develop strong climbing canes, so prune only dead stems, faded flowers, and weak growth for the first two to three years.  Prune during the dormant season (usually November – Februrary) in mild-winter areas, and early spring (April) in cold winter areas.Jewelry

“Wonderful addition to my pendant collection” ~Lana A.

Columbines are a wonderful, easy to grow, addition to the garden.  Not only do the lovely flowers add interest, but they are also a favorite of hummingbirds.  Columbines can be grown in a variety of soil types as long as it is well-drained and not too dry.  While they prefer full sun in many areas, they don’t like it very hot, particularly in summer.  In hotter areas, such as the South, they should be planted in partial shade and mulched to help insulate the plants and keep the soil moist.

Columbines start easily from seed and multiply quickly once established.  Blooms will not appear on seed grown plants until the second year.  Columbine seeds can be sown directly in the garden from early spring to mid-summer.  Pre-established plants can be put in the ground at the same time.  Spacing for both plants and seeds should be between 1-2 feet apart.

To encourage blooming be sure to regularly deadhead.  If self-seeding becomes a problem, both the foliage and seedpods should be cut back in the fall.  However, since Columbine plants usually have a short lifespan of 3-4 years, allowing them to self-sow is recommended.
