Transplanting Climbing Rose

wheatley added on December 3, 2010 | Answered

My fiancee brought the roots and stems of a climbing rose to Atlanta Ga. from Toulouse France. It is Fall and I was wondering how to care for this plant and help it survive the winter. Right now I have it in peat moss and potting soil. Thank you and I hope you can help us. We plan a wedding in the summer and it will be in our garden and hopefully be blooming for the wedding.

In your area, I would recommend placing it outside for the winter. They need a bit of cold. Place it in a sheltered location, like next to the foundation of a house. Pile up mulch around the pot. Make sure it can get rain water where it is and if it can't, you will need to water it once a month.

You can plant it out in the spring. These article will help:
