Plant Care & Advice
Climbing varieties prefer fertile, humus rich, moist but well-drained soil. Though they will flower best with the top growth in full sun, they are less prone to aphid attack in partial shade. Remove old and weak stems to stimulate new growth from the base. Shorten about one in three older branches, cutting to a new, upright shoot. Renovate by hard pruning to a framework of older branches in late winter or early spring.
