Here is an instance where we are inviting you NOT to copy our lead. Despite what it may look like, we have not been using a radical new method to prune our climbing roses on the Weather Hill Rose Garden. Instead, we've been chopping them back to make their removal easier.
It’s been a feature of the Weather Hill Rose Garden for many years, with the current supports in place since the late 1980s but today the 60-odd supports and ropes are on their way out.
This is all part of the major new plan for this area, with an exciting new rose garden that will incorporate new disease resistant roses and companion planting, designed using our own in house expertise and external designer.
I’ll keep you posted here about how our plans are developing.
