Covering An Arbor With Rosescomments (8) May 5th, 2011 in blogs
Video Length: 4:14
Produced by: Paul Zimmerman Roses
We've all seen pictures of an arbor leading into a Cottage Garden surrounded by a white picket fence. Plants spilling every which way. And in the photo that arbor is simply draped in rose blossoms from top to bottom. You try to recreate that scene in your own garden and instead ended up with roses on top and a few leaves on the side? Not exactly what you had in mind when you started.
So what's the secret. I'll tell you. It's called "layering" and our video shows you exactly what I mean and how to get, and mantain, your dream rose arbor.

Everyone loves roses. If you always wanted to add roses to your garden but were too intimidated by their diva reputation, Roses Are Plants, Too is the blog for you.
Paul Zimmerman has grown thousands of roses for over 15 years and for ten of those years in a sustainable manner. His common-sense approach shows you how to integrate garden roses into your landscape by looking at them as nothing more than flowering shrubs, all the while encouraging you to trust your own "Gardener's Instincts" in the care of these beautiful plants.
You will learn how to prune and train climbing roses, and how to get the most "ka-bloom" out of your shrub, David Austin and Knockout rose bushes. You'll get tips on growing roses organically and trimming them all season to keep their shape. You'll discover the difference between own-root and grafted roses, and more. Much of the instruction will be via videos that Paul produces himself!
Paul Zimmerman ran a rose care company in Los Angeles before moving to South Carolina to start Ashdown Roses. Now he focuses on rose education and teaching via Paul Zimmerman Roses. He lectures, gives workshops, and judges rose trials around the world, and it is this experience he brings to this blog.
Whether you are new to roses or an experienced grower, Paul will open your garden to the vast diversity our national flower offers.
