Is there a good rose variety to grow in a pot ... Shrub, climber, floribunda, anything will do.
(but I'm not keen on those small 'patio' roses)



Miniatures, the smaller shrubs, and most of the Floribundas are the easiest, though almost any rose will work if the tub is large enough--100 cm wide and 70 cm deep for Hybrid Teas, Grandifloras, and mid-sized shrubs. It might be hard to find a tub large enough to fit the larger climbers and shrubs.

I have a few in pots Hywel but as Tug says LARGE pots. Rhapsody in blue, Osiria, Purple Tiger to name a few.

Thanks, I like Rhapsody in Blue. I'll try to get one when I can get to a garden centre. They are supposed to be open in Wales soon.

My Golden Showers has been an absolute picture this year -- growing in a dustbin (with drainage holes) for at least ten years.
