Lubera stops plant deliveries to the UK
Due to Brexit, we are not able to deliver to the UK. We are working on a solution on how we can continue to bring a wide range of Lubera plants to the UK and directly to our customers' homes in the future. However, such a solution will not be available before 2022 or 2023.

More information about rambling roses


These are wild rose hybrids that form their own rose group, which has existed since the 19th century. Rambling roses (from the English term 'to ramble') were created by crossing the species Multiflora and Wichuraiana. Ramblers put a lot of power into their very long, flexible shoots and only flower once a year - but they are all the more impressive because of their very many beautiful flower clusters. Overall, rambling roses are much more vigorous than large-flowered roses. Their special climbing properties make them ideal for pergolas, arches, climbing frames and trees. They can grow up to 10 metres high without climbing aids and can decorate, for example, an old fruit tree with a light crown without pruning and with little care. Frequent flowering climbing roses, which we have assigned to the modern roses, combine the charm and fragrance of old roses with the flowering ability of modern roses. These grow densely bushy and usually remain somewhat smaller.



Rambling roses from the Lubera garden shop


Rambling roses have a large number of varieties. Here are a few examples from our extensive range:

‘Bobby James’ is extremely good at climbing on trees and smells wonderful. ‘Lykkefund’ is almost thornless and delights with an abundance of creamy white flowers. ‘Paul's Himalayan Musk’ has super growth, reaching up to 10 metres in height - and  it is a flowering wonder in pink and rose-white.


How do these roses grow?


Rambling roses form many small flowers, which in turn, produce whole bands of flowers. With their flexible shoots, they are very adaptable. Ramblers can grow up to twelve metres high - therefore, growing them a pot is not recommended for many varieties.


Planting climbing roses


Roses need a nutrient-rich, humus-rich and permeable location. Soil that is too acid should be treated with lime. These types of climbing roses need quite a lot of space, as they become very bulky over time and the root space expands accordingly. Allow about one-metre distance to the object to be covered. Rose petals should always be allowed to dry quickly in order to prevent disease. The location should be as airy as possible. The planting hole should be covered with mature compost. Caution: if a rose has already been planted at the intended location, it is essential that you change the site.

The ideal planting time for your rambler rose is early spring or autumn, although container roses can be planted all year round.


Planting on a tree


Rambler roses do well growing up old fruit trees or other trees with a light crown. Remember that the trunk of the tree should be quite strong (at least 30 centimetres in diameter) because a rambler rose can develop a decent weight in the long run. After cutting the rose shoots back to a length of about 40 centimetres, carefully dig a fairly large planting hole (do not damage any tree roots) about one metre from the tree and fill it with nutrient-rich soil. It is advisable to plant the rose in the direction of the wind so that the rose shoots adhere well to the tree. Now lower a large plastic bucket without a bottom into the planting hole and place the rose in it. The bucket serves to prevent the roots of the tree from growing in. However, it should be noted that there are rose experts who advise against the bucket method.

Now create a way for the rose shoots to reach the lower branches of the tree. This can be achieved with the help of a rope. Little by little, your new garden beauty will become one with the tree.




If your rose has survived the first few months well watered, it will become less demanding in terms of water requirements over time. On a wall (with a roof overhang) you should ensure that your rose receives enough water. Never water the rose petals!




It is best to fertilise with an organic fertiliser at the beginning of April and then again after the flowering period. The end of July is the last fertilisation date so that the newly formed shoots do not freeze in the winter. Suitable fertilisers are compost, horn shavings or the special rose fertiliser from Lubera.


Climbing aid


Rambler roses are able to grow up on objects without any climbing aids - their shoots and spines help them do so. However, a climbing aid is useful on a smooth wall.




In contrast to the more frequently flowering varieties, rambling roses in this category show their fullness of flowers on perennial shoots. Depending on the variety, the flowering period can last several weeks. As they do not reassemble, a maintenance cut should be made immediately after flowering. Overall, as little pruning as possible should be done. Only a nurturing thinning cut should be made, in which dead shoots and withered leaves are removed. If you want to limit the height growth of the rambler roses a little, you can achieve this by cutting the shoots. In the long run, however, it is not possible to cut the fast-growing ramblers, e.g. in the treetops. On a rose arch, you can cut your rambler roses like climbing roses - leave only the strongest shoots standing so that all branches get enough light.
