CAN I GROW A CLIMBING ROSE IN A POT?
INTRODUCTION | THE RIGHT ROSES
At The Right Roses, we support two important causes:
- ‘The Best Rose Experience’.
- ‘Together We Protect This Planet’.
The team at The Right Roses firmly believes that, with the support from all members, collectively we can make a big difference. Moreover, sharing your own experience and stories will be such an important way to enrich the resources for rose-lovers all over the world, including YOU.
One of the most frequent questions we have received so far is ‘can I grow this or that climbing rose in a pot?’. That is a big question and our answer always is ‘it depends’. And, we really think that is not a perfect answer, although it is true. The performance of a rose depends on many factors.
We would like to provide a more comprehensive answer to that question by publishing the experiences of gardeners around the world. If you have a climbing rose in pot, please make sure to share your rose experience with us by writing to RightRosesCom@gmail.com. Millions of gardeners would highly appreciate your kindness.

‘MY FAVORITE ROSES’ SERIES | ROSE ‘CLAIRE AUSTIN’ | PENELOPELOW
Name of the Rose: Claire Austin
Breeder: David Austin 2007
Country: Northern California, USA
Number of hours of direct sunlight in the summer: 6 hours of afternoon sun
Spray or not: NO SPRAY with very healthy leaves and blooms, no sign of thrips
How long have you planted this rose in your garden? 3 months
Ground or pot: In pot
I moved her out of full scorching sun, and Claire has been in a large pot under an olive tree. She has not been sprayed and seems very healthy. I got Lady Gardener at the same time and LG was in more exposed spot. LG was mauled and mutilated by thrips munching on her. I just picked the damaged buds off. Claire (different spot) seems to have escaped the thrip infestation entirely. All her blooms have been perfectly formed so far, which is unusual for first year bare root. She seems remarkably resilient and healthy, and I seem to have found her happy spot.
