How do you plant a rose to climb up a tree?

gwtamaraJanuary 1, 2013

Tree roots give roses a lot of competition for nutriants and water so it is best to plant the rose three feet away from the base of the tree. Slope the rose in the planting hole on an angle towards the tree trunk, then tie it onto a stake that is attatched to the tree. When it has grown up the stake and can be tied to the tree then remove the stake.
