Journal of a rose gardener...to pot or not to pot 21/07/16

We are often asked by customers whether they can place the rose which they have chosen in a pot in the garden. If the rose is a patio (for example. Diamond, Elizabeth, Queen Mother) , compact floribunda (Ballerina, Darcy Bussell, Flower Carpet) or compact climber, (Cinderella, Good as Gold, Star Performer) it will be happy in a pot, but hybrid tea roses, larger climbers and ramblers will struggle.

Patio Climber WARM WELCOME

Q. Can I grow a climbing rose in a pot. A. Most climbing roses will grow too big and tall for a pot .  However there are quite a few small modern climbers that can be grown successfully in a large pot.   They are sold now under the title of Patio Climbers or Courtyard Climbers and bred to survive in a pot or container.  Please browse our web site under PATIO CLIMBERS and you will find numerous varieties which will fit the bill.

ROSE OF THE WEEK

One of the most common requests we have is to suggest climbing roses that will grow on a North wall .  Over the next few weeks we will highlight all  the climbers we have  that will  tolerate a Northern aspect.

However you have to accept a simple golden rule.

“More sun. More flowers”

CASINO

Climbing Rose.

1963.  10ft-12ft

This really is one of the best yellow-flowered climbing roses around, and its floriferousness is quite remarkable.

The soft yellow, double, quartered blooms are well formed, very full and fragrant.

They hold their large, old fashioned shape well and  and repeat superbly, often up to 5 times per year.

The hips if deadheading is not completed, are large, round and attractive.

Also makes an excellent cut flower.

Dark green glossy healthy foliage which has good disease resistance.

Best in sun, but will tolerate a North wall.

A good rose that has not received the attention it deserves.

National Rose Society Gold Medal Winner in 1963.

CHAPLIN’S PINK CLIMBER

Climbing Rose.

1928.   15ft plus

 A popular old rose which is not so widely used these days which is a great shame as it is very beautiful and versatile.

Although it is called a climber it is also known as a rambler as it has a rambling habit and mostly summer flowering.

The blooms are vivid pink which are not to everyone's taste, and have golden yellow stamens.    

The blooms are produced in large clusters of 8-12 and are very free flowering and last for ages, with some scattered flowering later in the season.

Glossy mid green foliage plus a nice musky fragrance.

Grows to 15ft plus and is suitable for growing up trees and will also cope with a North wall.

Well worth a place in any rose lover's garden.

Bred by Chaplin Bros.  UK

AWARDS

Royal Horticultural Society, Award of Garden Merit.  1928

Royal National Rose Society Certificate of Merit. 1928

Royal National Rose Society Gold Medal 1928

Also known as Chaplins Pink.    Chaplins Pink Cluster.

CITY OF YORK

Rambling Rose.

1945.   15ft

This lovely old Rambler has been around a while, but we have included it in our Rambler section as we have had so many requests for it as it is considered to be one of the best of the repeat ramblers.

Most ramblers are only summer flowering, but this is one of the few that repeat well.

It produces large clusters of creamy white blooms with attractive yellow centres, plus quite a good perfume for a rambler.

Leathery glossy green foliage which has excellent disease resistance.

A very versatile rose as it can be grown up trees, is shade tolerant, can be grown on any aspect including a North wall and will cope with poor soils.

Won an American Rose Society Gold Medal in 1950

Bred by Tantau. Germany 1939-1945. There are some date differences of opinion regarding this rose.

DANCING QUEEN

(Rose Of The Week)

Climbing Rose

2004.   8ft-10ft

Large beautifully shaped blooms of bright pink with a continuous flowering habit.

It always seems to be in flower and the blooms keep coming right through until the autumn.

In our opinion one of the nicest climbing roses to arrive on the market for some while.

Plenty of large, dark green, semi glossy foliage with a good health record.

A very attractive rose with a good perfume.

A super rose to have either side of the front or back door.

Will grow on a South or North facing wall.

GOLD STANDARD AWARD WINNER 2006

DANCING QUEEN  (Fryfestoon)

Since 2006 a few roses are selected each year for this prestigious award.   Based on cumulative information from invited independent judges, the Gold Standard is awarded to worthy varieties.

Health,  floriferousness,  scent and commercial appeal are all considered key factors in the final choice.

ROSE OF THE WEEK

WARM WELCOME

Patio Climber.

1992.  7ft-8ft

A really eye catching rose.

A simple flower of bright red-orange which covers this climber from top to bottom.

Flowers right through the season.

Keep it in a cosy place and you will even have flowers at Christmas.

We have also tried it on a North wall with good results.

Undoubtedly our best selling patio climber.

This range of small climbers have become extremely popular due to their versatility .

Most can be grown in containers and are very attractive either side of the front door without growing too high.

They can be pruned quite low each year to control the height.

Highly recommended.

Fragrant.

ROSE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

NORTH AMERICA

BLUSH NOISETTE

200 Years Of Noisette Roses

The 200th Anniversary Celebration of the Noisette rose is to be held in the City of Orangeburg’s Edisto Memorial Gardens on August 20th, 2011. The event will take place in the Fine Arts Building, 649 Riverside Drive starting at 10:30 am.

This event will the highlight the only class of roses ever created in North America and specifically South Carolina. The Noisettes were created on a rice plantation just out of Charleston in 1811 by John Champney. By the friendship of Philippe Noisette, the rose traveled to Europe and played a significant role in what is now known as the “modern roses”.

August 20th. will be marked by speakers familiar with the Noisette rose. These speakers are known nationally and internationally for their work with the rose. Also, potted Noisette roses will be available for sale to the public. A garden tour will be held at the end of the talks.

There will be a keynote speaker that day. That speaker is Mrs. Peggy Clement of Charleston and a direct descendant of Philippe Noisette. Mrs. Clement will speak about her family’s history and have a two week exhibit in the Fine Arts Building. It is hoped that she will be able to bring relatives from France and Haiti when she comes on the 20th.

So, plan to attend this historical and interesting event.

This event is open to the public and free admission. For more information contact Jay Hiers 803-533-5870 or [email protected]
