William Baffin Climbing Rose Care
Plant William Baffin Climbing Rose in a location that gets 6 to 8 hours of full sun in a hole big enough to accommodate its root ball. It prefers rich, moist, well-draining soil. The pH should range between 6.0 and 6.5. If the soil is deficient in nutrients, mix a little compost into it. A water lover, this shrub requires anywhere from 1 to 2 inches of rain or irrigation per week. Water when the top 2 inches of soil are dry. To inspire the best blooms, feed it with a formula specific for roses one or two times per month.
William Baffin Climbing Rose blooms on new wood. Rejuvenate this shrub during early spring by cutting the canes back by 33%. Shape it to encourage more horizontal growth, which leads to a greater number of blooms. Remove spent blooms during the flowering season.
William Baffin Climbing Rose Spacing
