Horizontal wire support for climbing rose and clematis
I've got three clematis to grow 'against' three different fences, and a couple of climbing roses and a rambler turning up any day.
I've been reading a bit about the support required - my plan was to secure a series of horizontal wires using vine eyes and turnbuckles.
Would only horizontal wires (at approx 45cm apart) be fine for both the roses and clematis, or should clematis have more of a mesh to allow for vertical support?
Other question was the thickness of the wire - I've bought 1.6 mm galvanised wire, does anyone have any thoughts if this is sufficient for both the roses and clematis?
