Yes, of course it will, though it might not survive being contained in a pot unless its a very small rose.

...or a very large pot! No idea what rose it is ann?

My main concern is how often it has been moved already. Twice in one month?She might want to leave it in the pot for a month or two to let it come out of shock, before giving it another one. Admittedly, late spring or summer planting means religious watering.

Ann...It seems you've not long joined GoY so I thought I'd welcome you to this nice, friendly community of all things gardening/pets.

I'm sorry you can't go to the bungalow and have a garden; it will have to be pots for now. I hope you have a good measure of success with your rose bush in the pot.

Good luck with the computer...I'm sure I read on your profile page that you were new to computing. Nice to have you on board. Would this be a little grandaughter in your photo by any chance? She's a cutie :) I am nana to 4 grandchildren...

Congratulations on your grandchildren, and also welcome on my part, Ann! I'm sorry to seem like such a nosy parker, but any detail can help improve your chances with the bush. Fortunately, roses are far more resilient and adaptable plants than most people think, so it will probably be just fine. The keys to success are a large pot (50+ cm tall and wide), good compost, and regular watering and feeding. Best wishes, Tug.
