Climbers can be used in a multitude of situations, limited only by your imagination. For best results espalier the long canes into a horizontal position to promote lateral growth. Do not prune for the first two seasons and then only to remove dead wood
and unproductive growth. Climbers flower best from two year old canes.
They can grow in three different sizes.
Ramblers - tend to give heavy vigorous growth grow between 4 to 6 meter spread
Climbers - are easier to grow and can get between a 3 to 4 meter spread
Pillar climbers - generally better for a more controlled growth up verandah posts or small arbours. They grow up to 2.5 meters in most situations.
Plant approximately 2 to 5m apart depending on the growth habit. However the distance will depend on the coverage you require. At the very minium 1.5m apart.
