Growing roses in pots in an English Garden.

Roses are an essential part of your English Garden and most roses can be successfully grown in pots.
Remember that roses like good drainage (so plenty of crocks) and a decent sized pot (so their roots aren’t cramped).
They prefer a good soil that is slightly acid or neutral.

Potted plants tend to lose the nutrients from fertilizers more quickly than plants in borders and beds so you will need to water and feed them regularly - a daily inspection does no harm and is good for you.

Here is my selection of roses to use in pots, that will help you create an English Garden effect.
You can find them in garden centers or rose nurseries, the latter are often the best places to buy your roses as they will be able to advise you on a rose that will be perfect for your particular spot.

I am assuming that you have a spot that gets at least half a day’s sunshine.

You can try encouraging a shrub rose up a cane to make a smaller climber or pillar if you have a large pot.

Enjoy your English Garden!
