Back in April I received my "Blaze of Glory" climbing rose bush. It looked like this when it came in the mail from the Jackson and Perkins catalog. I planted it April 3rd, in a 60 gal pot.
I took a photo on May 1st of the first blooms and thought, wow, look how fast she is growing.
Although I was a skeptic, the rose bush is growing in leaps and bounds. The photo below is from yesterday, June 10, and it's taller than me and doing so well. We have had a full week of rain and I'm wondering if it might be getting too much water? Yesterday and today the sun is out and it's in the 90's, so she has a chance to dry out a bit.
So far there has been no work on my part. I simply planted it in a good size pot with the good potting soil and let her go. I may just order another for my back deck but I'm afraid there might not be enough sun back there?
This spot gets about 7 hours of full sun and she is growing faster than I could imagine.
Might just need more room for her to grow since the trellis is rather small. Maybe if I just keep wrapping her in and out of the spaces she might do well. Or, should I just tie her to one side because how will I prune her properly if she is winding in and out? This is my first attempt at growing a climbing rose bush and I've got a lot to learn.
I'll update in a few months as I'm so enjoying watching my "Blaze of Glory" flourish!
"Enjoy your week everyone"
