Odile and other gardeners to the rescue!

We've been given a lovely rose climber "Pierre de Ronsard" as a present today. We are moving house exactly in a year's time, what should we do with it? Planting it might be a nightmare to retrieve next year. Would it survive in a large pot?


Any tips?

It should be fine in a large pot. In your shoes I'd prune it right back in the autumn and it should overwinter without any problems.
Put a decent sized trellis or obelisk in the pot to give it some support over the summer.

For obelisk and trellis, in the U.K. we used Agriframes.co.uk Could you recommend something similar over here? Cheers.

Re: Odile and other gardeners to the rescue!

Might be cheaper and better choice to get from the UK. These guys are really good and will ship- but we normally order than bring in the car when we visit.

Re: Odile and other gardeners to the rescue!

If the rose is going to be planted in the ground at some point reasonably soon (you say next year?), then you really don't need to spend vast amount on fancy obelisks or trellising.
For the moment keeep the rose pruned back, use a couple of those metal tomato spirals or a basic extendable x-style trellis to support the runners you do want to encourage, above all protect the root ball from drying out and especially from frost next winter.
Then enjoy planting it properly next Spring in a spot you can enjoy it!!

In a similar situation, have a rambling rose bought at the same time as one we gave as a gift to MIL in memory of a special trip to Devon a few years ago. She has since died an OH doesn't want to leave ours behind when we move back to the UK. Hers was left in the garden when the house was sold.... so long ripped up.

It's survived so far, just don't forget to water it, keep it well pruned, and above all protect the pot (and therefore the rootball) during the winter!

Re: Odile and other gardeners to the rescue!

Lucky you, Pierre de Ronsard is a lovely rose. I was given one and it did so well in my East Leicestershire garden- but did not survive the move here (unlike other David Austin roses that did). Do you know where it was bought? I would ask the suppliers for advice. Personally I would plant it in a large pot- but make sure you mix soil and not use only compost. Is it a bare root plant or in a pot?
The rose expert for Romandie is not far from you- why not go and ask him. Alain Tschanz has tons of experience and is very friendly.
