We have several dozen odd, helical iron posts at Bush’s Pasture Park that hold climbing roses. The posts date from the early 1960’s. Each year, each rose has to be pruned to the ten strongest canes, then wound and tied to the posts’ crossbars. It takes about 40-50 knots per rose and takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half to select canes, prune the unwanted canes, and tie the canes to the post. City Horticulturist Tom Beatty and volunteers train the roses each fall.
