Can I plant my rose that's in a small pot into a much larger pot

I have a just joey rose gifted to me and I'm unable to plant in ground. It is is a 20cm pot and I have a tall large 70cm pot I'd like to replant into. Is this too big. Do I need to go up pot size by pot size?

Answer: Hi Bec,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

The best time to transplant your roses is in the winter when they are dormant. After giving it a prune, you can move it into a larger pot. The pot only needs to be twice the size as the current root ball. Any larger than that it can create an environment that will hold too much moisture in the soil and cause rotting.

Just be sure that after you transplant you give the rose a gentle feed Yates Thrive Naturals Roses & Flowers Liquid Plant Food.

Kind regards
