Q.rambling rose

Anonymous added on August 11, 2015 | Answered

I have a jasmine grandiflora about 6 yrs old. I have been given a cutting of a very old rambling rose, have only space on a wall with the jasmine. Can I grow it with the jasmine or would it do best in a large tub on the only wall left, which is a west facing garage wall? No soil here, only concrete. The jasmine is on a house wall facing east and the house faces south. This wall is in sunlight from early am until about 2pm. It is always quite hot but sheltered from winds and frost.

You could try growing the rambling rose in a container as you mentioned, but be sure the container has good drainage and that you are giving the rose just enough water. Roses require calcium to bloom, so I would suggest you "water" the plant with two cups of milk made from powdered milk every two weeks. Then add just a bit of water so that the milk does not remain on the surface of the soil. For other watering, use water that does not contain softener salt.
