Hi, Would it be ok to plant a Arthur Bell climbing Rose together with a Rose Albertine? In the same hole to grow up an arch?

Dig a wide hole, that will give you the room for the root growth of the roses. Many rose growers advise adding compost to the native soil to add micronutrients to the soil when you plant the roses. Roses do need a lot of food and water to keep them healthy and blooming.

Both roses are vigorous growers and should grow fine together. If one rose seems diminished in growth and vigor. I would consider moving it. Pairing of plants like these may or may not be successful. I often use the trial and error method in my garden.

These are two beautiful roses. I would suggest separate planting holes to give each plant a good root run. They require a good strong root system to be able to support the top growth and provide nourishment for healthy foliage and flowers.
The addition of mycorrhizal fungi to the planting hole will give the roots a good start.
Keep plants well watered and feed with a proprietary rose feed.

Good luck and enjoy the blooms .

In my experience, it is better to put compost material near the top of the planting hole or just on top. Compost decomposes and if you have too much mixed in with your back fill throughout the planting hole, the rose will sink ... Smiling

Also, the feeder roots of a rose plant are near the surface and can take advantage of all of the good stuff you provide your roses.
