Growing roses in containers means you can easily transport them from place to place, and they add beauty and fragrance to any home or garden.
You Will Need
A plastic or clay container
Fish emulsion fertilizer or Epsom salt
STEP 1 Choose container
Choose a plastic or clay container with good drainage and adequate room for root growth.
Choose a 16-inch or larger container to reduce watering and heat build-up problems.
STEP 2 Fill with soil
Fill the container two-thirds full with artificial soil.
STEP 3 Plant the rose
Place the rose over the artificial soil and fill the area around it with more soil. The bud onion should be level with the soil line.
STEP 4 Water the rose
Water the rose until water comes out of the bottom of the pot. Water every day or every other day, keeping the soil damp.
Spot-check for dryness by inserting a finger an inch into the soil. If the soil is dry, you need to water your rose.
STEP 5 Feed the plant
Feed your rose with fish emulsion fertilizer or Epsom salt once a week to produce substantial blossoms.
STEP 6 Keep in sunlight
Place your rose container where it will get a minimum of 7 hours sunlight a day.
STEP 7 Show off to friends
Show off your beautiful container roses to neighbors, friends, and family.
According to fossil evidence, the rose is 35 million years old.
