Iron rose stakes

Previous - Next

1975. Iron stakes for roses' are sometimes formed with expanding heads, as in figs. 553. and 554. When fixed in the ground, these stakes should stand an inch or two higher than the stock on which the rose is grafted. The branches of the graft may then be trained regularly to the spreading head of the stake. A beautiful exemplification of this mode of training roses may be seen in the Gard. Mag. vol. viii. p. 680.
