Can I grow Rosa albertine in a pot? im from east yorkshire and ive put it in a pot today but i have a few plants to ask about lol



This rose is a vigorous rambler so I would say it wont fare well in a pot .
Its also not very disease resistance and very thorny so make sure you spray with rose clear every fortnight.
Ah I see you already have this in a pot now .It needs to be at least 18" deep Zoe.

I would have said this is not a rose for a pot - it's VERY vigorous and will have difficulty coping with a restricted root run. If it has to be in a pot, make it the biggest you can possibly find and feed it and water it very well and very regularly. I eventually dug mine out and replaced it with "New Dawn" because of the problems with blackspot.
