Hi
I was fighting with heavy rains (I am in Vancouver, BC) fuddling my containers on the balcony and damaging climbing roses and clematises for a couple of years and came with quite simple solutions

1. increase number ans size of drainage holes in the containers
2. use plant cloth on the top of drainage holes to prevent clogging of the holes with potting soil
3 cover the containers with plastic hoodies and move it to more protected places for the most wet period of the year. Use mulch on the top of the soil.
4. use plastic covers with openings for the plant but covering the rest of the container when forecast predicts a few days of rain. remove it when the rain is over.

Hope it helps,
Cheers,
D
