The shoot at the back goes straight up and I wanted it more horizontal. It is now pretty firm so I'm not training it yet until later when it becomes elastic. Last year I let them grow straight up and the flowers ended 5m high 😆 It is great to have pictures catalogued and be able to see plant history by just a few sweeps. I really recommend everyone to use this feature, so much better than tagging.
Maybe it was too much fertilizer? The leaves are unusually big. What a growth in just a week! There was lots of rain that worked with fertilizer we added long ago.There are 6 shoots and several shoot buds on the longer branch, 5 shoots on the shorter one.
Far away from earthly worries... I will tie it to the arch but that will cause it only to create more shoots, I'm afraid. Maybe I need to lean the whole trunk, this tall arch is not suitable for this kind of rose.
