Using climbing roses, gardeners often want to create a shady resting place, arrange an entrance to a site or an alley, if the place allows, decorate fences with them and disguise unsightly buildings. With the help of vertical supports make the rose a central figure of a flower garden or even the whole garden.
But when choosing a place for such a design, you need to remember that a rose is a delicate plant with its needs and preferences. Therefore, it should be planted where it will be possible to provide a sufficient amount of light, where water will not accumulate, flowing from the whole area, where ground water does not come close to the surface. Otherwise, if you plant a rose in an inappropriate place for it, then you will not have to enjoy the wonderful flowering, but treat it for many diseases, admiring only the prepared support, not twined with lush branches.
Climbing roses are divided into scars and ramblers, which are very different from each other. So most varieties of scrubs have powerful, thick, almost bending shoots growing up to 2 or more meters. They have an amazing aroma and large flowers. A florist among other advantages especially note a small number of thorns. At first glance, their bushes do not require support for growth, but they need it, because heavy flowering branches can break under their own weight and the actions of the wind. Reliance will not only support the shoots, it will help them look really gorgeous.
Ramblera without support will grow badly and absolutely will not look like they deserve. Their thin flexible branches grow to 4.5 meters, they are covered with small abundant flowers that look very decorative on the supports of fancy or very simple forms.
In addition to being convenient for the rose itself, the place should allow the support to be fixed so that it can withstand not only the weight of the rose, but also be able to withstand strong gusts of wind. If the roses are supposed to be placed on the wall, then the support should be at a distance of 25 cm from it, a smaller distance will not provide air circulation.
Types of supports
The shapes of the supports are characterized by a great variety, but they are based on several basic varieties that designers play around depending on the desired result. The main ones are the arch or pergola, tapestries, which can be in the form of a vertical wall, a pyramid, a ladder or simply lattices, pillars or monuments.
When building a support, you need to remember that climbing roses themselves do not twist and do not cling to the support, they must be consistently sent in the right direction and fixed on the support. In addition, there is a very important secret of flowering - flowers are formed not on the main shoots, but on short, usually branches, which depart from them at a right (or almost) angle, and these young twigs always grow upwards. Therefore, the main shoots should be placed horizontally or at least at an angle of 45 degrees to the ground line. This must be remembered, braiding support. You can not send shoots vertically upwards, then the flowers will appear somewhere high, they will be small, flowering from June to September will not work. And, of course, the bush should be freed from the faded roses, which stimulates the formation of new buds.
It is necessary to build a support before planting the plant, in order not to damage the roots of the already growing rose on this place.
Arches are built at the entrance to the site, in the gazebo, house or some area of the park. The arch for roses with his own hands is usually made of wood or metal. The tree always looks great among the flowers, it is used to maintain massive stems, and metal structures often twine with thin delicate shoots. Wooden arches, covered with varnish or paint, can last more than 10 years, and metal at least 15 years.
The supporting pillars need to be fixed in the ground thoroughly, in some cases they even make a concrete base. For the arch they make a vault, and for a pergola they install a lattice (most often wooden) according to the type of roof. The pillars must be at least 1.80 m high, around them wooden bars or metal rods are installed in a circle at the same distance, they are fixed on the base and top beam. Here, along them, the growing shoots of roses will be directed, they will curl around the column in a spiral, lying almost horizontally. Two shoots can be braided towards each other, they will be covered with young sprigs of flowers.
For the pergola, you can use a removable network of ropes or lattice of wooden slats. Such a construction will make it easier to hide a bush for the winter; its main part will simply come off together with a grill or net.
The pallet is placed against a wall or in the middle of a garden, separating different zones. It may simply be a rectangular structure consisting of a sturdy frame, usually wooden, and a lattice located (fixed) inside this frame. Summer residents usually use metal wire or wooden planks for the trellis, which look great among the greenery of a rose when painted with white paint. Use plastic purchased lattices less often. Tapestries are arranged in the form of a fan or give them a bizarre shape, which the rosebush itself acquires, hiding a trellis under it.
You can just dig in the ground vertical racks of the desired height, usually from a half meters and above. Holes are made in them along the entire height 20–50 cm apart, nails crooked with hooks are inserted with the help of tongs. These resulting hooks tighten the wire - that’s the simplest frame. It must be disinfected and painted.
On the trellis it is not necessary to place roses on one side; shoots can be passed through the trellis; then a flowering wall will come out on both sides. This is not very convenient for the care of covering roses - in the fall it will be difficult to unravel them to fold and cover for the winter, and if the roses do not need such warming, then the double-sided flowering trellis will look very impressive.
Mesh Rabita, permeated with climbing roses, can serve as an example of a simple trellis, but it can also be a magnificent hedge, completely hidden under the leaves and flowers of a lush plant.
A pillar as a support for roses can be of any height, be in the middle of a flower bed, placing it in two planes in this way, and can stand near a bench or a gazebo, delighting the eyes of the resting hosts and enviousing their guests. The parks make an excellent composition, placing the pillars at the same distance from each other along the avenue or trail, connecting them with a beautiful sagging rope or chain. Roses, uvivayuschie pillars, picturesquely hanging from these chains of flowering garlands.
A pillar can be made of any material, at dachas it is, as a rule, wood, and in parks there is anything you want - wood, metal, stone. But around this central support, metal or wooden horizontal circular fragments should be located, on which shoots will be sprung along them, so that the branches spiral up and then also go down, if the length of the shoots allows.
According to this principle, it is not just pillars that are built, but pyramids or other elongated structures, commonly referred to as monuments.
Props, whatever form they may be, are designed not only to maintain climbing roses, but also to help them look in all their amazing beauty, decorating the garden.
General rules for the care of a climbing rose
The seedlings of the climbing rose have an open root system, so before planting, they should be left in the water for a day. The plant is planted in the spring. Before planting, it is necessary to cut the rose into two shoots, it is about 30 cm. The stems are not cut in the autumn, this procedure is carried out only in the spring. The root system is trimmed to 25 cm. After planting, the bush is sprinkled with pre-pounded charcoal. This is done for decontamination.
When caring for a climbing rose, you need:
- Watering. In summer, the old climbing rose can stay for a long time without moisture, however, gardeners still recommend watering the plants as the soil dries out. This is done under the root system in the late evening or early morning. Powdery mildew is a common plant disease. It appears if there is a lot of moisture on the leaves. It is forbidden to water the plant little by little and often.
- Top dressing. The quality of flowering and the growth rate of a climbing rose directly depends on the top dressing. If you do not give the plant useful substances, then it ceases to bloom abundantly, it loses the ability to repair. Top dressing is of two types: root and foliar.
- Mulching. During this process, the soil retains moisture, weed growth is blocked, and the plant is additionally fertilized. For mulching suitable peat, manure, mowed grass, leaf humus, chopped tree bark.
- Loosening. To improve the aeration process and reduce weed growth, loosening is carried out.
All processes must be done with the utmost care and responsibility. For each bush, you must use special supports for climbing roses. Rose supports are of several types:
Why trellis for climbing roses
Tapestry for roses is used to divide the territory and give the desired shape to the plant. To make a trellis for rose climbing, use the frame and grille. The latter can be made of wood or metal, it is fixed in a frame. In order not to carry out a lot of installation work using a welding machine, a grid or a wooden beam is used as a grille.
Note! In specialized stores plastic lattices are on sale, but they practically are not in demand.
Tapestry for spray roses is set as follows:
- metal or wooden two-meter racks are buried vertically on the ground,
- racks are equipped with holes that are at different distances - from 24 to 51 cm,
- nails are screwed into the holes, which are folded in the form of a hook in advance,
- to the twisted hooks tensioned wire.
Rose on the trellis
After the design is ready, it must be disinfected and painted.
Support for climbing roses do it yourself
In specialized stores purchase holders for roses will be expensive. Therefore, it is better when the supports for roses are made by hand. There is the easiest way to make a frame for a rose at home, using a pyramidal structure.
On a note! The support is made of two 6-meter boards 2.5 cm thick. The slats must be made of wood, their width is 2.5 cm. Self-tapping screws and a jigsaw or a hacksaw will also be needed.
- cut one meter from each of the boards,
- cut these meter boards still in half and put aside,
- The remaining 5-meter boards can also be cut in half,
- dissolve the boards along the slats 40 mm wide,
- in the lower part of the obelisk to make spacers of half-meter boards,
- connect them on top, and reinforce the sides with rails,
- cut the thin slats in the form of a ladder between the legs of the obelisk.
How to make a trellis for roses
You can plant a climbing rose on all four sides of the obelisk. Flowering "pillars" are formed as the flower grows.
Pergola for roses
Pergola for roses can be made with your own hands in the form of an arch. The pergola entwined with roses will look very impressive in the garden.
Instructions for making props for climbing roses:
- parallel to each other to dig in metal poles (wooden bars), in 2 m increments,
- fasten a wooden or metal grid between them
- above fix the same grid.
Pergola for roses
The plant must be directed up the grate, planted - from the outside. Perlog closes completely in 3-4 years. It is best to choose varieties of long-sleek ramblers: Crimson Rambler, Lyon Rambler, etc.
Forged supports for roses
For roses, the fence of the armature is made in the form of arches. The arch of climbing roses at the entrance to the courtyard will look very original. No less impressive, it will look at the entrance to the garden, gazebo or house. The basis for such arches is taken wood or metal pipes, fittings. Curl the plant will be up.
A tree will look very beautiful with leaves and flowers. In order for the wooden arch to look harmonious, it is recommended to plant the plants with a thick stem. Quite the opposite should be done with metal arches: they look best with plants with thin stems. In contrast to the wooden, metal arch will last longer.
Forged supports for roses
Important! In order for a wooden arch to serve longer, it is necessary to varnish it. This will help protect the structure from moisture.
Tips and tricks from experienced flower growers and gardeners
As a support for climbing roses used stone, wood, plastic and metal. There are several factors influencing what the frame for the plant will be made of: garden design, price of materials and design, variety of flowers.
Horizontal bars should be placed at a distance of 50 cm from each other. Additional crossbars are made if the bush is strongly branched.
Note! Large spherical supports are perfect for bushes with large inflorescences. Vertical supports are suitable for small inflorescences.
For a minimum investment, the plant can be planted near the fence or shed. They will serve as a support for the plant. In order for the plant not to become infected with an infection from the support, it should be painted and varnished.
Instead of a trellis, you can use the fence
Regardless of the type of support, first of all it is necessary to properly plant the plant, to care for it, so that it grows and rises along the arches made.
Climbing rose is widely used for decorating garden plots, however, if it is improperly fixed on a trellis or a support, flowers will appear only on the top of the bush. It is necessary to form a plant so that as many branches as possible are in a horizontal position, then the gardener will receive beautiful rose bushes with abundant flowering.
Common mistakes when garter climbing roses
When tying the lashes of roses of any variety, it is important not to make three mistakes:
- Overly stiff garter.
The epidermis of the stem of a rose is strong enough, however, it can also be injured too hard garter. Infected pathogens easily penetrate into the place with torn bark, and the infected shoot will have to be cut off.
- Fastening to the support in many places.
Trying to firmly secure the shoots, we must not forget that in the fall they will need to be removed and placed under cover. Multiple garter greatly complicate this task. Scour ramblers enough to wrap around a support in 2-3 turns and tie up only at the top. Shoots climber tying in 2-3 places.
- Fastening to the flimsy support.
In the midst of bloom, climbing roses become very heavy. If the support is not strong enough, any wind will fill it, forcing the grower to work hard to untie and lift the bush from the ground, and then restore the structure.
Tip # 1. Climbing roses for many years grow in one place. Therefore, it is advisable to mount the support already during the preparation of the landing pit, cementing the base.
Arches, lanes or ladders: what to choose?
Horticultural centers offer a variety of ready-made design solutions for vertical gardening:
Trellis (trellis panel)
5700 for 1 span
Grid screen with a pot
Location support for climbing roses depends on the design plan of the grower. So you can arrange the entrance to the site or to the house, create an arched tunnel above the path, or put a support with a rose in the central figure in the rose garden.
Of great importance is the illumination area, which will be located climbing rose. It is necessary to choose the brightest place, protected from cold winds, because in the shade roses bloom worse and grow slower.
Obelisk for climbing roses do it yourself
Supports for climbing roses are expensive. However, you can minimize costs and do it yourself. The easiest option - arrangement of the pyramidal structure. These are sold in garden centers, but they are usually not high enough (1.5 m) and are not suitable for high-growth ramblers.
For self-construction of an obelisk for roses, you will need two 6-meter planks 25 mm thick, wooden slats 25 mm wide, a handsaw or jigsaw, as well as screws. The sequence of work is as follows:
- cut 1 meter from each board,
- divide each segment in half and set aside,
- the rest of the boards divided into segments of 2.5 m,
- dissolve the boards along the slats 4 cm wide,
- from the half-meter segments make a spacer in the lower part of the obelisk,
- fasten the spacers of the slats in the corners and connect them from above,
- fasten thin slats in the form of a ladder between the legs of the obelisk.
Climbing roses are planted on all four sides of the obelisk. As they grow, flowering "pillars" are formed.
Arched pergola for climbing roses do it yourself
An exceptionally spectacular element of garden decor is a pergola, entwined with roses. It can also be built independently:
- вкопать деревянные брусы или металлические столбы с шагом 1,5-2 м в два ряда – друг напротив друга,
- связать их между собой решёткой из реек или металлических прутов,
- связать ряды между собой такой же решёткой поверху.
Розы высаживаются с внешней стороны рядов и направляются вверх по решёткам. After 3-4 years, long-sleeved ramblers are able to completely close the pergola.
Pergola allows you to roam the fantasy of a landscape designer. For example, it is possible in this way to assemble not a continuous tunnel, but a series of wide arches a little apart from each other. This option is good because it does not create a large shading area.
Another spectacular use of pergolas is the creation of a decorative porch in front of the house. Also with its help, you can successfully arrange a summer terrace.
Tip # 2. For the pergola is not necessary to buy any expensive material. Today, rustic style is very popular in landscape design. Its feature is the use of natural materials with minimal processing. For the pergola in the rustic style, for example, coarsely connected large branches of garden trees after pruning are suitable.
Driving rose lashes along the wall
This option is suitable for both ramblers and climber. The difference lies only in the height of the structure. For climber, more width than height is important. Long-sleek ramblers can be placed on the wall and up, and in breadth, and a fan.
To put a climbing rose on the wall, it should be planted at a distance of about 50 cm from the building. So the plant, on the one hand, will have enough space to form a good root system, and on the other hand, the lash will freely reach the first support.
There are three common types of supports for weaving roses on the wall:
- Lattice weaving. For this purpose, a grid of strips is mounted on the wall, to which the shoots of roses are tied. Suitable for all varieties of climbing roses.
Flexible shoots of ramblers can be left without a garter, if you pass them through the slats of the grid.
When decorating buildings with climbing roses, it is important to keep in mind one thing: it is undesirable that the shoots closely adhere to the wall, especially if it is wooden. In this case, the wall can syret. Therefore, the installation of supports should provide some clearance for good aeration.
how to do it yourself
Climbing rose shoots can reach several meters. Any support that is in close proximity to the rosebush, is rather quickly braided by its long and flexible branches. Luxurious climbing rose will be able to decorate any garden design - successfully disguised old buildings, part of the wall or roof. This plant is ideal for vertical gardening.

Climbing rose will help create a great place to relax in the garden. Thanks to its ability to mount on any surface, gardeners draw alleys, arches, gazebos, fences and other buildings. Also climbing roses can be mounted on a vertical support, which will make it even more noticeable. In any case, a climbing rose will look attractive only on a specially prepared surface. Leaving the bush unattended, there is a risk that it will simply lay down on the ground.
You can create a simple construction with your own hands, which will look spectacular and will be the main decoration of the garden plot. How to make a support for climbing roses and what needs to be taken into account when making it yourself, we will explain in detail in this article.
Selection of varieties of climbing roses
Not all climbing roses are suitable for growing on any support. They can all be divided into 2 types - scrubs and ramblers.
Scrubs - these are mainly powerful bushes with thick, practically not bending branches. In addition, they rarely grow above two meters. These varieties have large flowers with a pleasant aroma. Among the advantages, they also point out that there are very few thorns on the bushes. And although it may seem that they do not need support, this is far from the case. Perhaps they will not curl over the arch or gazebo, but at least they need a vertical support. Due to the weight of the flowers, the branches on such bushes can bend and just break. Reliance will give roses a more attractive look, as well as protect the bush from the wind.
Ramblers, unlike scrubs, absolutely can not exist without support. Their branches are too thin to hold themselves on weight. These bushes can grow up to 4–5 meters in height, so that they can be easily adjusted to any support, even the most complex structure. These plants usually have small flowers, but they bloom very long and long.
Remember that support for climbing roses is not just a good decorative solution, but also a necessity. Due to strong winds, the bush can break and suffer greatly.
Important! If a wall is assumed as a support for a rose, then a bush should be planted at a distance of at least half a meter from it. A close-set rose cannot get enough air.

Types of support for climbing roses
Options support for climbing roses today just a huge amount. But there are basic types that you can beat at your discretion. These supports include:
- Arches and pergolas
- The pyramids
- Vertical trellis
- Lattices or stairs
Whatever the construction, during the growth of the bush you need to constantly direct it in the right direction. The rose itself will not curl in the desired direction. In this case, the branches must be attached to the support.
In order for the bush to have a decorative appearance, the main branches must be fixed horizontally to the surface of the earth. Flowers on climbing roses grow on young shoots, which are often located at right angles to the main stem. As the flowers wither, they should be removed from the bush to give the plant the power to form new roses.
Important! By directing the shoots of climbing roses up, you can get a poor flowering somewhere at the top of the bush.
It is necessary to make support even before the bush of a climbing rose will be planted. Establishing a support after planting, you can greatly damage the already weak young roots of the rose.
Arch for climbing roses
Arches, usually set at the entrance to the courtyard. You can also place it near the entrance to the gazebo, house or garden.
The base for the arch is made of wood, plastic or metal. Each of these materials has its own advantages and disadvantages.
A tree, for example, blends very well with flowers and green leaves. Thick wooden stalks are usually attached to wooden arches. But on metal structures thin shoots with small flowers look better. The only advantage of metal arches over wooden ones is that they will last much longer. Plastic, of course, will not rot, but the percussions from it are quite fragile.
To extend the life of a wooden arch, it should be varnished or waterproof paint. This coating will protect the structure from moisture, and it can last for about ten years.
For the foundation of the arch also need to use a reliable material. Often they are fixed in the ground with concrete. Next, construct a vault, or put a lattice, if it is a pergola. The height of the pillars should be about 1.8–2 meters. Metal rods or wooden bars are attached to them in order to attach branches to them in the future. For the construction of pergolas use a wooden lattice or a network of ropes. Having made such a construction, in the fall it will be much easier to remove the bush, because it will simply come off together with the grate.
Climbing Rose Pole
A pillar is a universal support for roses that can be placed in any part of the garden. It will look good both independently near the tracks, or benches, and in the middle of a flower bed. They can be beautifully placed at the same distance along the alley or fence. Roses, growing to the height of the pillar, hang down beautifully, creating the appearance of flowering trees.
For the construction of the pillar fit any material. Most commonly used stone, wood and metal. But the circular structures around the pillar must be made of metal or wood. It is on them that the branches will be mounted. By the pillar principle, pyramids or monuments can also be built.
Now there are ready-made devices for vertical gardening of various forms.
Feature of climbing roses
Rose hips include climbing roses, as well as several types of garden roses, the stems of which branch. They are very popular in vertical gardening of buildings, walls, gazebos and fences. These plants are able to decorate any area or structure. Climbing roses are widely used to create various designs in the garden: arbors, columns, arches, pyramids, garlands. And they are wonderful combined with any other plants.
There is no general description for climbing roses, because there are many varieties of them. However, in the international floriculture classics, it is customary to divide these plants into 3 groups.
Rambler roses have long flexible shoots, arcuate or creeping, which are painted in a saturated green color. In length, they can reach 500 cm. On the surface of the shoots are spikes. Glossy leaves are small, and the flowers can be simple, double or semi-double, their diameter usually does not exceed 25 mm. Inflorescences with a weak aroma, are located along the entire length of the stems.
Blooming rose ramblers begins in June and lasts more than 4 weeks. Most varieties can be called frost-resistant: they are able to successfully winter, even under light shelter.
Climbing roses-climers were bred by crossing ramblers with tea representatives, remontant representatives, as well as floribunda roses. The length of their stems can reach 400 cm. The flowers are quite large (more than 4 cm in diameter), and they are part of small inflorescences. Claymery different lush and prolonged flowering. Most varieties bloom twice during the season.
Roses-climers tolerate winters well and are resistant to powdery mildew.
The klaimings appeared due to the crossing of large-flowered mutating shrub roses, such as grandiflora, floribunda and hybrid tea. The difference of this plant species is that they have very large flowers (up to 11 cm) and strong growth. In this case, they can be both single and part of the inflorescences. Another difference is in later flowering. Most varieties bloom again.
Roses-growers are cultivated only in the southern regions of the temperate zone, where winter is relatively warm and mild.
What should be the support for roses?
Beginning flower growers sometimes think that you can plant a climbing rose at the fence or wall, and the flower will independently find a place to be cast. But this is a misconception. Support this plant is necessary, and it must meet criteria such as:
- Durability and reliability. The support must withstand the weaving of lush, uneasy pink branches. Structures such as the arch, pergola, and others should be firmly entrenched in the ground.
- Decorative. The support should organically look and fit into the design of the entire building or site. In addition, you need to select a backup depending on the grade. So, for example, huge designs will not suit small flowers, and small arches will no longer fit tall stems after a certain time.
- Compactness. The support must be strong, but at the same time compact. Its elements are only partially to look out from under the bush.
- Efficiency. Finished structures are not cheap, so the best way to save money is to make a support yourself.
Important! Select the shape and size of the support for the particular varieties of roses. The whole structure must be resistant and light to withstand the bush.
What types of supports should not be used for climbing roses?
Climbing roses are not suitable obelisks, support-pyramid: they are used for soft climbing plants. Since roses do not cling to anything (like clematis), as the shoots grow, they should be attached to the pole with a special wire. So, gradually, a rose will form.
The grid with small cells is also not very suitable for climbing roses: it is difficult to tie a plant to it, but it will not curl on its own. Choose a grid with large sections - it will be easy to remove a rose from it for the winter.
Types of supports for roses
Today, there are many options for supports, but there are basic types that can be played at your discretion, namely:
- arches and pergolas
- vertical trellis,
- grates or ladders.
- Support do before the bush is planted. Installing a support can damage weak young roots.
- Whatever the supporting structure, during the growth of the shoots of roses constantly send in the right direction and attach to the base. By itself, in the right direction, this flower will not curl.
- To give the bush a large decorative effect, the main branches are fixed horizontally in relation to the surface of the earth.
- Remove withered flowers from the bush to activate the formation of new buds.
Note! By directing the shoots upwards, you will get poor flowering at the top of the bush.
This is a universal support that can be installed in any part of the garden. This support will look good as near the tracks, benches or in the middle of a flower bed. Pillars can be symmetrically placed along the alley or fence. Growing to a height of a pillar, the rose hangs beautifully down, creating the appearance of flowering trees.
For the construction of a pillar fit any material. Most commonly used wood, stone or metal. But the circular elements around the pillar must be made of metal or wood, because the branches of a rose will be attached to them.
Arch and pergola
Arch set, as a rule, at the entrance to the courtyard. It can also be placed near the house, gazebos or the entrance to the garden. The basis for the arch is made of wood or metal. A tree, for example, goes well with flowers and green leaves.
Usually thick stalks attach to wooden arches. And on metal structures, thin shoots with small flowers look much better. The undeniable advantage of metal arches is their durability.
Tip! To make the wooden arch last longer, cover it with varnish or paint. This will protect the structure from moisture.
For the base arch use reliable material. Next, the pillars (1.8-2 m) is fixed in the ground by means of concrete. Then build a vault or put a grid, if it is a pergola. Metal rods or wooden bars are attached to the posts in order to attach branches to them.
Sometimes the arch is covered with several varieties of roses: it looks great, especially during the flowering period. Plants are planted at a distance of 50 cm from the arch. You can build in the garden a number of arches, following each other.
Wooden arches painted white are very popular. Wrought arches are also in demand, they are installed in a garden decorated in a classic style.
For the construction of pergolas using a wooden grid or a network of ropes. In the autumn the bush is removed along with the grill.
With the help of a trellis you can divide the area into zones. For the manufacture of a trellis construct a rectangular frame and lattice of metal or wood, which is fixed inside. Usually the grid is made of wooden slats or metal wire. You can buy ready-made plastic grids, although they are not in special demand.
It is easiest for the pallet to do it by hand. This will require a chain-link with large cells or a regular mesh that needs to be pulled between two supports. An even simpler option is to use a wire threaded through the holes in the supports. Stages of work:
- Select a location to install the structure.
- Dig in props (metal or wood).
- Secure them in the ground.
- Cover the support with paint or varnish.
- Stretch the mesh (see photo).
Note! Instead of the grid, you can use thin wooden planks, placing them in the form of a grid on the frame of bars.
Do-it-yourself arch construction
The arch for climbing roses is easily constructed from reinforcement or wood. Algorithm of actions:
- Support poles with a height of at least 1.8 m securely fasten in the ground (better fix them with a concrete base).
- Make a vault for the arch.
- Set around the pillars in a circle, metal or wooden rods, securing them at the base and on the top beam. On them subsequently and will twist runners.
It is very easy to make a support in the form of a pillar: it is simply driven into the ground and horizontal circular fragments of wood or metal are constructed around it. They contribute to the desired fixation of the stems, so that they twist around the structure in a spiral.
- The material for the supports should be selected taking into account the variety of roses and garden design.
- Do not let the roses weave spontaneously: send your shoots to the side regularly, so shoots will grow upwards.
- Между горизонтальными брусьями подпорки расстояние должно быть не мене 50 см. Если куст слишком ветвистый, дополните опору дополнительными горизонтальными балками.
- Крупные цветы роз лучше всего смотрятся на шаровидных больших конструкциях. For small pink inflorescences, vertical stands are suitable.
- Paint the legs from time to time and treat them, otherwise they will become a source of infection.
- If the rose is planted next to the fence, wait until it grows to it and send it along it.
A well-thought-out plan, proper location and regular maintenance will lead to a wonderful result: you will receive a green oasis with fragrant flowers on the plot. Carefully made supports for roses will brighten the landscape even in non-flowering seasons.
Purpose support for climbing roses
The vertical trellis for roses is decorative decoration for your garden, which saves space and also expands the visual area. A rose is a plant that can create a special atmosphere in any place. Material for the manufacture of supports should be selected based on the specific features of the garden plot, solving the problem of gardening.
Curly roses can elevate any facade of the house. Plants will grow over time, closing unsightly areas of your building. Surely most people can find in their garden toAny unnecessary posts or propsthat are idle. With their help, you can easily make a support for flowers, which will be combined with the overall design of your home and garden or will play in contrasting colors.
It is necessary to take into account the color in which the facade and the frame are painted so that beautiful flowers can be clearly seen on their background. Finally, climbing roses will help in creating blooming oasis for your garden. Made a support for roses will be compact and easy to rearrange.
What should be a trellis for roses
To think that a climbing rose need only be planted against a fence or wall is wrong, because the flower will not find its own place for weaving. There are a number of requirements that must be observed in the manufacture of their own trellis for climbing plants:
- Reliability and durability. The base must have good stability and must also be well fixed so that the weight of the ornamental plant does not collapse the structure. Any support must be securely buried in the ground or secured with metal stakes. Some heavy flowers may, under their own weight, bend the support from an unsuccessfully selected material, for example, from plastic.
- Decorative. A self-made trellis should be picturesque and blend in harmoniously with the exterior of the garden plot, especially when the plant does not fully braid it
- Combination with a variety of colors. A bulky stand is not suitable for small roses, and a miniature will not be able to withstand tall and large plants.
- Compactness. It is not desirable that the support takes a lot of space on the site. When installing, consider the length of the flower shoots and how much space is needed to form a thick and beautiful shrub.
- Economy. In order not to spend money on ready-made arches, stands and supports - you should make it yourself.
- Trellis should be made of materials that are environmentally friendly. The rose does not differ in capriciousness, however, during the flowering period, not only the water for irrigation and the soil, but also the material used in the manufacture of the support should be different in purity.
- The support should be easy to manufacture and operate.
Grid-trellis for climbing roses
To make such a support is not difficult, besides, it will cost quite cheap, thanks to the low price of materials. A chain-link with cells larger is best. You can also try to stretch the rope net between two supports - this trellis is perfect for exquisite plants. The support is made as follows:
- We determine the place where the support will be installed.
- We dig in wooden or metal poles along the marked edges.
- We cover the pillars with varnish or paint.
- We stretch the grid.
The mesh, made of steel wire, has a long service life - 10-15 years. In addition, it will provide the ability to create different patterns from flowers. As fasteners, you can use small parts, nails and staples.
Trellis can also be made using thin wood plates. At first it is necessary to prepare a frame from the bars, and then in the form of a grid to fill thin boards on it. With such a construction, you can create a bush in the form of a screen and, if desired, divide the garden plot into two zones. With the help of such a trellis, a climbing bush can even be given fan-like shape.
On a garden plot, carved wooden pillars look great if different sorts of roses intertwine beautifully between them. The stems of plants should be directed to one side and form a pink lush stand as the shrub grows. When using the tapestry against the wall, is necessary maintain a distance of 15-30 cm in order not to disturb the air circulation around the roses. Such tapestries can last for at least 10 years.
Pergolas and arches in the flower garden
These tapestries have a number great advantages - they are very roomy and functional, and also invariably remain beautiful and decorative. When choosing roses with thin flexible branches, arches made of metal arcs will serve as a support. Pergola called the latticed roof, located on the support pillars, the purpose of which is the weaving of roses. It can also serve as a summer garden gazebo.
The pillars at the pergolas, as a rule, are metal, and its top is wooden. Making such a design with your own hands, choose the width and length of the arbor on your own. Put metal pillars and build a wooden lattice between them.
The arches are miniature and have curved shapes. Most often, this design is used to divide the garden plot into certain zones; they can also decorate the entrance to the gazebo or be used to decorate garden paths. Most popular are wooden arches. Painted white.
Such designs give the garden a feeling of cleanliness and comfort. Wrought arches are in great demand - they are usually installed in the garden, which is decorated in a classic style.
Sometimes the arch is covered with several types of colors at once - such a work of art looks very much spectacularly, especially when the plants are intertwined and bloom. In this case, it is customary to plant flowers about half a meter from the arch, so as not to oppress the rose bush. You can also make a whole arcade in your garden - several arches, arranged in a row behind each other.
Cone pillars and supports
Such supports can also be by myself to make from wooden or metal pillars and rods. If there is only one pillar, it is necessary to dig in very well. For creating supports, the pillars are generally very convenient - they are quite wide and at the same time compact.
Very often, a pole made of columns is planted. very slowly curly roses. The supports can be in the form of a column, cylinders, a cone - and they all perfectly fit climbing rose.
If you wish to make a support similar to a cone, you should install several wooden bars in a circle or use metal rods for this, bending and connecting them in the upper part. This stand is perfect for both roses and other winding flowers.
- It should be remembered: a climbing rose will not be able to curl on its own, it must be constantly guided and tied up, and the branches should be directed sideways during the garter;
- The material for the manufacture of the support can be a stone, plastic, metal or wood. Make a choice based on affordability, varieties of roses and garden design.
- Using horizontal bars for support, leave a distance of at least 50 cm between them. If the rose bush is too branched, additional beams should be installed horizontally.
- Large flowers of roses look best, braiding spherical shaped trellis, mounted on large supports. On the vertical stands small roses will look beautiful.
- Props must be processed and painted, otherwise they can become a source of infection.
- The crossbar on the grid and the support must not be placed too often.
- Between horizontal crossbars, a distance of 50 cm should be maintained (for heavily climbing rose varieties, it should be supported by several additional logs)
- Support can serve as an old wooden fence or even a barn. Complete the construction with additional elements for weaving roses and plant several bushes at a distance of 50 cm from the support.
- If the rose bush is planted at a distance of 50 cm from the fence, you should wait until the plant grows to the support and then send a climbing flower along it.
For climbing roses, you can choose any of the support options. In addition, you should know how right plant the plant and care for it. It is necessary to monitor the weaving of flowers and in time to cut off the excess shoots, observe the watering mode, feed the plant with fertilizers.
Making a support yourself
First you need to choose the right place for the trellis. Climbing rose is pretty photophilous plant, it can never settle down on the marshy territory, because it does not tolerate excess moisture.
Therefore, the place should be chosen so that there is a small descent next to it - then you can dig a small trench to drain water. You can also place a support on a hill, where the groundwater is located at a depth of 2 meters from the surface.
Place for a trellis should be well lit. It is not allowed to place the support in the wind and strong drafts. In addition, the flowers need space.
The material from which made support, should be able to tolerate the scorching rays of the sun, frost, heavy rains, as well as the negative effects of frequent irrigation and regular fertilizing with fertilizers that contain chemicals that can damage the surface of the support.
Roses are heavy enough blooming state. This should be taken into account when building a support, if you do not want the structure to simply collapse one day. Also, plants should have enough free space for growth and good ventilation. Then you should choose one of the types of support. Based on the variety of roses (their growth rate, leaf shape and size). For large varieties of roses fit a large design, for small, respectively, more compact.
When deciding to build pergola or arch, you need to stock up on fittings and wire, as well as tools:
- shovel for dropping pillars and pillars,
- brackets, brackets, screws for wood or nails, hammer, pliers and other fastening parts that can give the structure reliability, stability and rigidity,
- saw, drill, screwdriver,
- trellis panels that will decorate pergolas,
- cement or concrete mortar to strengthen the rack,
- timber of different sizes: 50x50 mm for transverse beams and 70x70 mm for main supports,
- bars for beams (100x50 mm and 100x100 mm), which are mounted on the sides.
The exact amount of building materials depends on the size of your project..
- We make a sketch of the design, showing more imagination. Remember to respect all proportions.
- We determine the height and width of the arch, and then measure centimeters on the workpieces.
- Carefully twist the base with a wire. It is recommended to decorate it with some patterns. You can use welding in the manufacture of the arch.
- Install the product after completion of construction. We dig two pits of 50 cm each, insert the ends of the arch into them and fill it with cement mortar for extra strength.
What support is suitable for the correct vitya roses?
There is an opinion, especially between beginning flower growers, that you can only plant this flower near the walls or near the fence, and the rose will independently find a place for painting. This thought is erroneous. There are certain requirements on which the support for rose bushes should be based.
- Reliability. The foundation must be resilient with sufficient strength. In other words, such a structure must withstand the weaving of lush pink branches. All these structures, such as the arch, tripod and others, must be firmly fixed in the ground with the help of iron mines.
- Decorative. In the event that a rose cannot braid the entire stand, the structure should look attractive and look organically with the design of the external environment.
- The corresponding rose variety. Huge constructions will not be able to approach the roses of small size in any way, and absolutely small arches will no longer correspond to tall stems after some time.
- Compactness. It is necessary to give great importance to such a task of support for roses, which are woven as a compact arrangement. Using trellis and tripod can
- Efficiency. Sometimes it is impossible to buy arches with stands in the finished form, since you need to spend a lot of finances on it. One of the best ways to maintain profitability is to make a support for roses yourself.
Pergolas with arches
Such designs can be made according to similar instructions. These supports have their own advantages. Arches with pergolas have a constant decorative effect, increased functionality and excellent capacity for rose stalks.
If the bushes are thin flexible branches, then you can use metal arches.
What are pergolas? They are the roof in the lattice, which is necessary for the molding of roses on supports (in this case, on poles). The provided facilities can replace not only the summer arbor. They can become a whole recreation area.
The base of the pillars is metallic in many cases. The top may be wooden. The exact dimensions of the pergolas are selected on their own. Such a structure is done quite simply - it is only necessary to fix the pillars in the ground and install a grid made of wood from above.
Very often the arches, which are made of wood, are erected to fasten roses with long stems. Shrubs eventually reach the very top of the structure.
At the arches there is a curvature and small size. Thanks to the arches, the entrance is decorated, the garden is divided into zones, and garden paths are decorated. Mostly arches are made of wood and painted in light colors. Designs of this type can create coziness and crystal purity.
Begin to gain popularity and forged structures. Thanks to these arches you can revive classicism in the garden (classic style).
Poles with supports in the form of cones
They can effortlessly make their own using the rods of wood or metal. The result should be one pillar. Just it will twist bushes of roses. At the same time, its installation and reliability should be flawless. Do not forget about the required height.
When it is time to find a suitable support for the rose bush, you need to pay attention to the fact that these flowers should not stand out. The support should be installed from the thickest side of the plant.
To make a support with a view of a cone, it is necessary to fix the rods or bars of wood in a circle. They should be joined together from above. In addition to climbing roses, these cone-shaped structures can become a support for other flowers that can curl. So, the supporting cone allows the use of all the enthusiasm for the implementation of any structures of decorative flowers.
A rose has no opportunity to curl on its own. So she needs direction and tying up. If the garter passes, the branches should be sent to the side. Due to this, shoots are formed, which begin to grow upwards.
What can a landscape designer advise
- You can use metal, wooden, plastic and even stone pillars as the material for making the support. It should take into account the design, the variety of roses and the cost of the request
- Horizontal bars should be installed spaced apart. not less than half a meter. In the event that the bush begins to branch out strongly, it is better to add crossbars,
- Roses that have large flowers can have a great view even on huge ball bearings. And for flowers with small buds, vertical stands can also come up,
- For vitya roses will be enough a fence made of wood or even a barn. At the same time, it is necessary to plant flowers half a meter from the fence (or a shed) and install special parts for additional support.
- The support in the obligatory form should pass processing and painting. In the worst case, roses will spread a different infection.
How to dig support for roses
In order to be able to trail any rose bush, a large number of different structures may be suitable. For a more comfortable tying shoots, they must have crossbars or horizontal grilles.
Trellis support should be characterized by such parameters as strength and stability. Otherwise, the wind can easily overturn such a structure.
Regardless of which option was chosen as a support for a climbing rose bush, it is necessary to plant these flowers correctly. Do not forget about the care of this plant. Нужно следить за тем, чтобы розы правильно плелись, отрезать лишние отростки своевременно и подкармливать собственные розы разнообразными удобрениями. Тогда эти цветы смогут украсить каждое здание и весь сад.
