Hi

I was wondering if it is possible to grow roses/climbing roses in a pot?

I would like to grow them either side of a small porch, which gets sun from late morning onwards.

thanks

Not possible, barremic. Roses poison soil to reduce competition. If you dig up a rose which is a few years old, you will find a very woody stem rather than roots but a foot or so away you will find the woody stem thinning and feeder roots appearing. This means that if a rose in your rose bed dies, before planting a replacement you have to change the soil as well. In a confined space like a container, your rose will eventually die. Ever wondered why those patio roses you buy in pots never seem to do as well the following year?
Bill.

OOPs Shocked didn't know they die in pots, I have 2 hybrid tea rose bushes that I've had growing in pots on my apartment balcony for over 3 years and are thriving. I've become pretty attached to them so hope they last another few years, at least until I can afford a house with a garden to plant them in.

In the meantime, Sharon, keep moving them into a bigger container. Pot-up, rather than repot.

last year i planted a honeysuckle at the base of a wild rose bush, but it hasnt grown an inch. is this because of the soil poisoning by the rose? never heard that before. it is in a sheltered spot now, and if i move it, there will be wind! anyone any advice?
