- Monty Don: Pergolas, arches, trees, even the side of the house will be enriched if you let roses ramble | Mail Online:
As a general rule, use climbers on walls, fences, pillars and pergolas and ramblers will grow into hedges, trees over large arches and may also be used on pillars and pergolas.

- Top 10 climbers - By Rachel de Thame.:
1. Rosa 'Penny Lane'
I COULD dedicate the whole article to climbing roses, but I've chosen this one simply because it's such a good doer. It was awarded Rose of the Year in 1998. I grow it in my garden on a lowish, north-east-facing wall. It produces nicely shaped flowers, beautiful in bud and almost blowsy when fully open. The colour is particularly subtle, buff with a hint of pink when young, becoming Champagne with age. It has good disease resistance, is compact enough for the smallest garden and it repeats well. Since it went in, I have always been able to pick a posy for the house at Christmas.
