climbing roses sucker/planting question
last year i planted 'crimson cascade' climbing roses. i did a lot of research as to whether i should plant the union joint above the soil or below, so as i read it, i planted them slightly below and this year both have sent up suckers, i'm presuming that is what they are, they are soft stemmed and some of the leaves are a bit different, no photo as i have already cut them off and binned them, so what should i do with them? dig them up and replant the union above ground or leave them and just cut off the suckers as they appear?
i have ordered two other climbing roses, both 'madame alfred carriere' should this one be above or below as i want to avoid the sucker issue again, have any of you any experience with either of these roses?
thanks in advance
