Home • Garden Advice • How To Plant a Patio Rose
Add some grit to the base of a large pot (with drainage holes in the base). Top up with John Innes No 3 compost.
Slip the rose out of its pot and plant in the centre of the new pot. Bury the raised bump (graft union) on the stem.
You can add a clematis as a companion for extra colour. Plant beside the rose, with the lower stems below the surface.
Carefully lower a decorative frame over the plants, making sure you do not damage the roots in the process.
When the frame is in place, carefully remove the plants’ cane supports. Then tie the stems to the frame with twine.
Add a few nemesias around the edge of the container. Firm in all plants and water well. Keep well watered.
