How To Plant Roses In Pots:

Rose is plant that requires little to no hard work at all. Which is why its so unique. So lets find out the easy steps to plant a rose into a pot or into the ground.

Correct rose: Make sure that you have the correct kind of rose. A fragrant, disease-resistant, and compact rose would be perfect to groom. Climber and large shrub roses or even low growing roses should be avoided.

Size: As mentioned, roses require a large container, so the bigger your container is, the better! The size should be ideally 8 to 15 gallons in range for the rose to achieve its premium size and health.

Material: Choosing the right quality of the container is also important! Plastic and Fiberglass pots tend to take the win here but they are lightweight and can tip over. Wood is good but will deteriorate with the passage of time. Terracotta is also porous, which gives it a great air circulation, however it dries out quite fast. Concrete and ceramic is long-lasting and perfect for permanent planting.

Drainage system: Make sure you have functional drainage in order for your rose to survive and leak out any unwanted excess water. If your pot doesn’t offer a drainage, don’t worry! You can drill one yourself!
