Hi, Gareth,
'American Pillar' is quite vigorous, and depending upon the size of the shed, could cover almost half in one growing season (assuming it's a smallish shed ;) Another one to consider, and I can vouch for its vigorous growth since I have two in my garden, is Rosa banksiae 'Lutea' - not as long a bloom time as 'American Pillar' but smothered clusters of double, pale yellow flowers for a good while. And not sure where you live, but it might behave semi-evergreen in a sheltered spot. Having said all this, however, buying bare root (though very sensible in terms of cost) will mean the plant will take longer to establish then buying a container plant.

Re: Times Past climbing rose in wrong position?

Hi, Heidi,
The max height on 'Times Past' is about 2.5m - not sure of distances but it might not be able to grow as high/large as you need it to get. Have you considered Rosa banksiae 'Lutea' or one of the other Rosa banksiae species? Very vigorous, covered with flowers in late spring and in sheltered, warmer spots can be semi-evergreen. Only thing to be mindful of is Rose replant disease - soil in which roses have recently been grown isn't suited for new rose plantings because of a build-up of harmful soil organisms. Did you have another rose in the ground before your 'Times Past' If this is the case, use fresh soil or sterilize the soil before planting (or if possible, move the planting site a bit).
