How to take care of Climbing Rose Iceberg
Choose a sunny site that gets at least 4 to 5 hours of sun. Soak bare root roses in a bucket of water overnight before planting to help rehydrate them. For potted roses, water the pot thoroughly and let them sit in the water until ready to plant. Remove any stones and clumps and loosen the soil a little, dig a hole around approx. 30cm (12") away from the fence or wall. For best results add well-rotted manure or compost to the soil. Never let the organic fertiliser come in direct contact with the roots, there needs to be at least 10 cm between the roots and organic fertiliser. If planting bare root roses, form a small mound of soil in the centre of the planting hole. Plant the rose so that the neck of the rose is about 5 cm below the ground. Fill the planting hole in and sprinkle some bone meal around the plant before pressing down firmly. Always water well after planting. Never plant roses during frost. If planting cannot take place immediately, keep the roses in plastic in a cold but frost free place. When the rose is established and has filled the space available, excessive growth can be pruned back at any time. In late autumn or winter, flowered side shoots can be pruned back by two-thirds of their length. Once established, use special [Fertilizer] regularly to encourage new growth during growth season .Climbing roses are heavy and need a definite path to grow, tie them up as soon as they start growing. You should water your climbing roses at least once a week.
