Just a couple of quick questions, What is meant when people say they bought a rose as a "band" and what exactly do people mean when they say they are "rustlers"?

In this case "rustled" roses are usually heritage or unidentified varieties propagated from abandoned homes, grave sites and the like.

rustled = collected

A "band' is a deep square pot used for propagation, usually black in color. They are generally small and less expensive to ship than other sizes.

Ah ha, that's cleared that up thank you. I've "rustled" roses from all sorts of places and once stole a sheep, so I've added rustler to my account.

Is it necessary to top the wilted blooms from a Papa Meiland climber in order to insure another blooming spell?

People who have struggled with Google Translate and Babelfish may appreciate the foresight of this poem. I can recognise a lot of French in it, but don't know enough of other languages to see if there are references to them.
THE PARTERRE by E H Palmer, 1840-1882, polyglot and Orientalist.

I don’t know any greatest treat
As sit him in a gay parterre
And sniff one up the perfume sweet
Of every roses buttoning there.

It only want my charming miss
Who make to blush the self red rose;
Oh! I have envy of to kiss
The end’s tip of her splendid nose.

Oh! I have envy of to be
What grass ‘neath her pantoffle push
And too much happy seemeth me
The margaret which her vestige crush.

But I will meet her nose at nose,
And take occasion for her hairs,
And indicate her all my woes,
That she in fine agree my prayers.

THE ENVOY
I don’t know any greatest treat
As sit him in a gay parterre,
With Madame who is too more sweet
Than every roses buttoning there.
