If I spoke to it nicely and asked it to grow outwards rather than across the path???

 I could explain about the danger of getting its toes run over by the wheelie bin 

...well, I can't see it, as it soon gets away from you, but anything is worth a try I suppose... 'Cambridge' much the same...

...Fuchsia 'Genii' any good...?

..I would think twice about planting this Geranium in a 6 inch width....it has an indefinite spread and would be almost impossible to contain in such a small space..

..this one was planted as a single stem with root 4 years ago...it's now 4 foot wide each way...

climbing rose problem

..how long have you had them?  they can take some time to settle down before they flower well... first couple of years can be all growth in my experience...

Rose Cutting Successful - now what??

...just a couple of things I've noticed there...your plant could do with a cane inserted, such as the one you have in the pot to the left... inserting it into the top left hand corner shouldn't do much damage to the root system...and it will be needed to keep the stems straight before it's planted... I also notice that there isn't much compost in that container..several inches below the rim...it could do with a top up...in fact looking at the top growth it's probably almost ready to be planted out...those roots should be growing well in there... definitely needs to be outside...as nutcutlet said earlier..

..perhaps you'll post a photo when it's in flower, so we can see what it's like..

...then I would wait until I saw those roots showing through the bottom of the pot...I would anticipate that should be before the end of summer, in which case you would plant it out just like any container bought rose... by Autumn at the very latest I would think, and that's a good time to plant in any case.... certainly no need to wait till Spring...just keep watered...no need to prune...if it flowers...enjoy them...

..some soluble feed in the watering can would be nice every couple of weeks or so...

just a word of warning...some roses grown on their own roots are not as vigorous as those which are grafted...no way of telling with yours until it's been in the ground for a while... but there is a chance it won't grow as big as you might expect or be as floriferous.... with other roses some are better for own root.... just have to wait and see.... do you know the name of it...?   just curious...

..well done...it looks really good... if you are certain the plant has a good root system in the pot...i.e. you should be able to see little white roots coming out of the bottom or just poking through...then you should plant it... no need to trim....just get it in the ground while there's plenty of moisture around...
