Growing Roses on a Fence

While most fences in San Jose are designed to provide privacy or protection, others are used for purely aesthetic purposes. Certain fence designs work excellently with your landscaping and can help your garden flourish. Watch this video for a few helpful tips on growing roses on a fence.

If you are planning on growing roses against a fence, it is important to consider the room they will need to expand. Rosebushes like to expand, so they should not be planted too closely to each other. Many homeowners like the look of vining roses climbing up a fence; if you choose to take this route, be sure to weave them through the fence rather than allowing them to drag along the ground. Roses tend to be relatively durable and can stand against temperature and humidity fluctuations, but it is important that you fertilize them on a regular basis. Kelp and seaweed extract can help them bloom.
