In which substrate should you plant rambler roses?

When is the best time to plant rambler roses?

What is the best way to plant rambler roses?

Rambler roses need the deepest possible planting hole with sufficient distance to other plants so that there is no competition for light and nutrients.

Furthermore, ramblers should not be planted directly in the middle of other climbing aids (e.g. pergolas), but rather offset at a slight angle. This gives the plant more space to grow.
