Experts and BHG readers answer.


I have a climbing rose that has been growing in a tub and the roots have grown into the soil, is it possible to cut some of the roots back so I can put it some where else, it's a beautiful strong highly scented rose so I don't want to kill it,I live in South Wales. U.K.

You certainly can cut back the roots. It will be effectively the same thing as transplanting the rose. So after cutting, treat it as you would any new transplant. Pay close attention to watering for several weeks.
