Video: How to Train a Rose on a Trellis

Paul Zimmerman, long-time rose grower and owner of Paul Zimmerman Roses in Landrum, South Carolina, reveals the secret to blanketing a trellis with blooms. You start with a trellis and a climbing rose, of course, but there’s a little more to it than just installing the trellis and planting the rose. If you do only that, you’ll most likely get a disappointing few blooms at the top of the structure, with a wall of mostly greenery and thorns.

For more expert advice on growing roses, see Paul’s article “Give Roses Tough Love” in the May/June 2010 issue of Fine Gardening Magazine(#133).
