Can I train a rambling rose over an arch?
i was given a rooted cutting of an unnamed but rather lovely red rambler and, three or four years later, it is beginning to take off. I planted it next to a cheap metal garden arch and it is now throwing out long shoots which need to be tied up, running the gamut of fierce thorns. Is it foolish to think of training it over this arch? Will it be too heavy and too rampant? I have a place next to a summerhouse to which I could move it, but it is in shade.
