Pegging Down Roses to Make a Border

Post by Dimity Cottage on 6th September 2013, 20:29

Hi, I am wanting to put low 2 borders of Roses along 2 gardens. One rose I want to use is a David Austin Rose CLAIRE AUSTIN & the other is a Kordes rose DIAMANT. I am wanting to keep the roses low so am wondering if I can peg them down, say with good quality Tent Pegs so as they stay low. Keeping them then trimmed on top so as to promote flowering. You may say use Dwarf Roses but I am really wanting to use these as they will tie in well with the other roses in my garden beds.
Also is it acceptable to trim David Austin's English Shrub Roses to keep them at a Desirable Height as I have some that may want to grow taller than others naturally but would like to keep them all around the same height.
Have a Happy Gardening Week End.

Probably no higher than 50cms, does that sound too short.

Sorry no red roses, I don't plant any red flowers in the garden as my husband is extremely colour blind and cannot see red flowers at all. But thanks for thinking about this for me.

You might find the DA 'Pegasus' does well with this? It's not too tall for me and wants to throw out longish lax canes that I reckon might peg well....

It also wouldn't be hard to lay down a climbing rose

Claire Austin would like to be around 120cm so you will have to get her early growth and do it in stages IMO. You say your husband is colour blind is this why you are using Claire Austin or it fits in the colour scheme of the garden. The other thing David Austin has a line of rose called "The Leander Group", maybe there is one in it which might be suitable.
One other option is I could contact thier Landscape Manager, Richard Stubbs and ask him some hard questions ?

Thanks so much for the help guys, I really appreciate it. Yes, I do want to plant David Austin in that particular garden as it is mainly David Austins. And yes I am following a colour scheme but it is true we have no red flowers planted in our garden at all due to my husbands colour blindness.
