Rose arch

Plenty of head height

Our Tunisian gardener is back from his home country and helping us to get straight before the winter.

There’s one job I was very pleased to see get done.

Where a rose arches over some steps, the branches had drooped so that you had to duck in order not to scrape your head on the thorns when going down.

He trimmed back the lowest elements, then lifted, supported and tied a strong major branch to form the structure of the arch at a good height for all reasonably-sized human beings.

At last it’s a breeze to go down the steps.

There was also a nice spin-off because some roses had to be cut and are now gracing the kitchen table.

Casualties from raising the arch
