Re: Climbing Rose "installation".
Hi everyone !
I have just purchased a climbing rose named "New Dawn". I haven't ever grown a climbing rose before and would appreciate any advice regarding growing site and care etc.
I intend siting it on one side of my front porch At present the area doesnt have soil, only tarmac. Will it be appropriate to grow this rose in a tub and if so what would be the best container and soil medium, etc?
It will be South facing, so will receive a lot of sunshine, (dream on !), in the afternoons. I guess there will be a propensity for it to dry out easily in sunny conditions.
I have grown a Ceanothus in this same spot and it was continually attacked by Scale insect and died.
Would it be best to dig up the tarmac rather than plant it in a container ?
I rest my case. All comments greatly appreciated.
