Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Hello! It's hard to say which plant you received without a photo. Please email pictures of the plant to firstname.lastname@example.org, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Happy Gardening!
I purchased 4 climbing roses and they are mere twigs. If they make it I can't imagine that they will produce any sort of flower for another 2 years. The root system on them doesn't fit the pot. I could guess these twigs have only been placed in these pots for a few months before being sold. These plants still need a greenhouse for another year.
Hello! Thank you for leaving us a review. It appears that your roses were trimmed in our greenhouse prior to being shipped out to you. Our dedicated growers choose to trim back the plants in order to direct more energy to the growing roots below the surface. Our growers are constantly checking our plants for well established roots prior to our plants leaving our greenhouse. We do ship young plants, as mentioned on our website. In regards to how quickly these new plants will grow, many factors such as weather, soil type, watering, fertilizing, and sunlight all come into play. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. If you have any additional concerns, our customer service team can further assist you at email@example.com. Happy Gardening!
I purchased this rose bush in 2018 and it really hasn't "prospered". I had hoped by now it would be down the my front entrance fence. Also mine is NOT red, another dissapointment. This year it is getting replaced!
