I purchased a climbing rose but have no where to plant it, I thought about taking a 4"x4" post making a cap on top, drilling through the cap and inserting a solar light, to make a lamp post. Then planting the rose next to it, of course I'll have to go shopping to plant more with it but do you think this will look o.k.?

Sounds like a great idea. Will the rose climb up the pole or does it need some kind of lattice to weave through?

Climbing roses won't 'grab' on to stuff - you either have to tie them or weave them yourself as they grow. Lattice is great for climbers!

Well, ended up putting a birdhouse on a pole and planting the rose at the base of it, then planted pink coneflowers all around.

Still planning the light idea but I want to plant clematis around it.
