    Can’t believe I’m in the rose forums! I’ve never been particularly interested in roses but my class have brought me a climbing rose at the end of the year which I am quite attached to already. The smell from the two flowers is stunning! At the moment, I don’t really have the room in my border to place it and so was wondering, will it grow in a pot, and if so, how big a pot would I need? I would obviously need to get a support for it too, to go I to the pot. I sort of hope to have it on the pot for a year or so and then could put it into the ground.

      Good morning @Markymark have a look at this thread it should give you some answers if not feel free to ask any questions you have:smile:

      Rose in pot

      Bred by Gordon Kirkham(United Kingdom, 2007).
      Introduced in United Kingdom by C & K Jones in 2007 as 'Bright Future'.
      Climber.
      Orange blend or orange-red. Bright orange aging to apricot, yellow stamens. Sweet fragrance. Double (17-25 petals) bloom form.
      Climbing. Medium, light green foliage.
      Height of 10' (305 cm).

      The best compost to use is a loam-based John Innes No 3 to which 10 to 20 percent multi-purpose compost or very well-rotted manure may be added for richness. Position the container before filling with compost as it may be too heavy to move once planted up.

      Roses love sunshine and should receive sun for at least half the day. However it is important that container-grown plants do not dry out or they will become prone to powdery mildew. If possible position the container so that it is shaded for part of the day, leaving the plant itself in full sun.
      Drainage: Keep the pots raised on feet and add a drainage layer of gravel at the bottom to ensure good winter drainage
      Feeding: Roses use up food reserves quickly and grow better if top-dressed each spring with a granular rose fertiliser. Additional feeding may be required as per the manufacturer's recommendations. Avoid feeding after August as soft growth may be damaged by cold winters
      Mulching: Mulch with a 5cm (2in) top-dressing of well-rotted garden compost or manure to help retain moisture and enrich the compost
      Top-dressing: Every second year, remove the top 5cm (2in) of compost and replace with a fresh layer

          What a lovely rose to be given - I love the name :blue thumb:

          And wow 10’ tall - that’s what I call a climber!!:yawn:
          We haven’t got an appropriate site for another climbing rose, but I would be very tempted...

          Well my rose is in and I am really pleased with it! Can't wait for it to bloom. I incorporated some bonemeal into the soil before planting and have put up a new trellis, so fingers crossed, it will thrive.
