Rose?

21 comments


Hi folks, a small question. My hubb said he has to dig up my climbing rose, Pauls scarlet, to make way for his new workshop/shed.
Now what do I do with it????
It has been pruned to about twelve inches in height and it is still flowering, aaaahh. Where do I put it once it has been dug out? Should I re-plant it straight away into a new home OR ?
I value your opinions.
Thank you.


Paul’s scarlet.

Well.....I don't think your husband would like my answer....Dig up YOUR rose to make room for HIS shed?????? No wonder I wasn't married for long.
;)))

LoL Lil!
If you do plant it up GM, just make sure it's watered every day, then they usually survive.
My darling hubby gave me a shed for my birthday one year. Bless him!

Depending on how long the shed will take to erect,I would ask his permission (as we always do in order to pave a path!!!!)LOL.....to use it as a support for your rose.That way you have the best of both worlds!!!

Straight into it's new home I would say Grandmage. I moved roses in mid summer before and did all survive. Make sure you water it well before and move it with a root ball as big as you can carry.

Lil.......LOL, have shown hubby your response, he just laughed.
Lou, thanks, not 100% where to put it yet, but will do that. I think a shed is a nice pressie :~)
Meadow, this rose used to ramble over his old workshop and he used to get attacked by the thorns when entering! but this time the workshop is going to be bigger so it has to come out for the footings to be dug.
Costas thank you very much, will get my hubb. to moce it for me with as many roots intact as possible.
Thanks all.

I had to take out a young plum tree and couldn't immedatly replant it as the ground was baked hard(you remember...when we had hot summers)
So I put it in a big pot, kept it well looked after and planted it out in the autumn with success

I would suggest he puts his shed somewhere else!

I think he should put his shed somewhere else :o))
But if you do let him dig it up this time of year, I think it should be planted back somewhere else ASAP.

Thanks Oji. I dont want to lose it, Pam that is another thought too, hmmmm. have I got a pot big enough? Suzy nice idea but there is nowhere else in the garden suitable! and Hywel, this space is at the back of the garage and hubb. is replacing his old shed/workshop for a bigger one!He needs somewhere to escape Lol. and I will certainly plant it or pot it up a.s.a.p. Thank you.

big as you possibly can with as least root disturbance, prune to remove flowers and keep out of direct sun and lots of tlc would be my advice then hope for the best

It's a beautiful rose so I can imagine you would be sorry to lose it. Hope you find a good spot for it :)

Can't offer you any advice Grandmage....just wanted to say I'm with Lil on this one :))). That's why I never married :))))). I don't do compromise!!! :)))
Good luck with it whatever you choose to do!

25 Jun, 2012

 

Ok Pam, thanks, will do all of that, Thanks Gee, it is a beauty that is why I was worried, it being the height of summer. Thanks Scot! I am very happy to compromise, especially as hubb spends hours outside tinkering!! I then get the tv. remote! Lol

Well I know wot I wud say ... But aside from that ... I have put my red climer in a pot as with a lot of my roses ... As large as u can and gud rose compost ... And then a gud irport or oberlisk over it ...
My roses do ok in there pots and makes it easier to look after them

Well in my opinion i have moved roses all the time as i am changing my garden .All i would say is try and place it in a similar place and it will then still thrive.

Nice one to your hubby,cant beat a good work shed lol:))))))

Lol Mark, I will tell him you approve! also I will have to move this rose anyway, so, fingers crossed. Thanks.

I hope your rose survived.
