Natasha has an archway and climbing rosebushes planted near the archway.
She declared that the rosebushes are not growing to climb on the archway.
What might be causing them not to be growing to climb on the archway?

Do they grow like a climber or are they short like a bush.

Climbing roses need to be tied into the archway, they are not self clinging. As Logan says check the varieties to see if they are climbing roses.
Picture would help.

Natasha expressed that the rose bushes have been tied up to the archway. However, new growth is growing away from the archway and not up and towards the archway.

Roses come in several forms. This is dependant upon most often, the rootstock on which the variety was budded/grafted. Out of interest. A glance at a rose catalogue will often name a rose, the state what forms it is being offered in. The latter being a reference to it's height, spread etc. Ground cover (prostate) Bush/shrub, can include bush such as florabundas, HT, hybrid Tea etc. Climbers and Ramblers.

I have seen Natasha. She remarked that her climbing roses are doing much better since she has tied them up.
