Can I grow Iceberg Roses in containers

Zone South Africa Highveld - warm to hot summers, cool winters | Anonymous added on May 26, 2016 | Answered

We have recently moved to a new house and the 'new' garden has Iceberg roses growing in the shade, which I would like to move into the sun. There is no bed available for them so I would like to put them into pots. Will they grow in pots?

The Iceberg rosebushes will do better planted in the ground typically. However they will do okay planted in big pots that are at least 20 inches in diameter and at least 20 to 24 inches deep. Make sure the big pots have drainage holes in the bottom. Place a layer of 3/4" gravel at the bottom of the pot to create a good "drainage zone". Bagged potting or garden soils are best to plant them in. Once dug up and planted into the pots, water them in well with water that has both a good root stimulator and a product called Super Thrive mixed into the same water. This mix will help get the root system going and also help with transplant shock.
