Climbing Rose Arbour in Canada?
I'm new at gardening and I was looking at a book. We have this wonderful huge yard with a gradual slope down. There is a public walkway by the side of this slope. I was inspired to make a rustic type arbour "hall" down (actually meandering) the expanse of grass, parallel to the walkway. I would love to having climbing roses on it. Is this a totally crazy idea for Canada? We have such a short growing season here...would the trellis "ever" look full and lush and full of blooms? Would it take too many years to build this up? Would it look alright in the winter? I would like to do "maple saplings" bound together and not wood as we want to keep it casual. Is this another fairytale?
