Climbing roses


By Kornos

Someone has given us 4 climbing roses they only about 2 ft high and in pots at present. We would like to know from anyone out there if it is possible to either keep them in the pots or plant them out into a border BUT without allowing them to climb too far-and we wondered if we could simply control their height and support them at the same time without having to buy trellis, obelisks etc. Will they still produce blooms? Any ideas please?



You can plunge the pots into your border which will control the growth of your roses to a certain extent. Canes can be tied in with wire to make a frame to support them.
