I love standard roses and I would like to create one from a Morden Blush that grows very well here. At the moment my plan is to buy a very small runt. Then prune it until it has one main stalk. Then stake it and prune any lateral branches. I would go out and buy a standard rose but it's way to cold for anything to be available for sale here. I would love some advice from someone who has actually created standard roses, I am flying by the seat of my pants and think I might be on the fast track to killing an innocent rose.
