I took 3 cuttings last (late) April from a healthy climbing rose as above and put each one in a separate 7" clay pot with 50/50 compost & perlite. All 3 in sheltered west facing spot and by autumn 2012 one showed growth and two failed. That one now has healthy growth still (over-wintered in same place, outside but sheltered and on a wooden bench).
If I pot on for one more year, can anyone please tell me what to use as the medium or should I just continue with the 50/50 mix? I do not want to risk losing it as it came from my parents house, which sadly is now sold. Many thanks.
