Can anyone tell me what climbing/rambling rose, if any, I could plant in a container to grow up the pergola we had erected last year or ideas for any other climbing we could put in . Unfortunately it is on a hard standing so I cannot put the plants into the ground. It would be nice to have something growing up it especially something that does not need too much looking after,it looks a bit bare as it is also, I've just thought ,what size container will I need.
Waiting in antisipation
Hi Lilylouisegrow better
I thought a rose or two would be nice but then I wondered about the roots and if they would grow alright in a container but I do like clematis and it would probably grow better.
Thanks for the suggestion
There are roses that grow really well in containers. There was another thread showing this and varieties BUT can't find it. Busy Lizzie posted some great pictures on it.
Will keep looking unless anyone else can find it???
Found it eventually. Have alook at these suggestions, and you can add clematis, if you spot the right ones will get flowers for a whole year
This is one of my Etoile Violettes

that is beautiful
Oh lovely. I planted one of those in autumn last year. Great, been wondering what a mature one would be like
Wish mine would as well ... like you still making it
Wow! I could put Phyllis Bide on one leg a clematis on the other then on the back leg put a rose and/or clematis that thrive in shade, it is sounding quite exciting. I have just bought some sweetpea seeds,as Monty reckons it is the best time.Oh no! he said it was early winter didn't he? I await the time when I will be able to take photo's and if the results are as good as yours, I'll be very happy
I am going to put a clematis to grow up through my Phyllis Bide - again only planted in november so will have to wait a while.
Lilylouise - that photo is amazing. How hard do you cut back that clematis?
