Growing a Rose bush in Containers
Choose a pot a size larger than the pot your rose bush comes in. A 5 gallon pot is a good option that offers plenty of space without going too big and causing problems for your rose bush. A standard 5 gallon pot is about 12 inches in diameter and 11 inches tall. Be sure the pot drains well.
Use a good quality potting mix like our Special Planting Mix when planting in containers.
You will need to check on your rose tree more often when it is planted in a pot as the soil will dry out faster. Test the soil by sticking your finger in about 2 inches to test the moisture. When the planting medium feels dry to the touch go ahead and water your rose bush deeply with a hose right on the soil.
Water your rose bush in well when planting. Keep the soil moist for the first month. Watering deeply 1 to 2 times per week versus a little bit everyday is ideal for helping you plant's roots establish quickly and grow well. Once established, allow the soil to dry before watering.
Fertilize at least twice a year with our slow release fertilizer. Early spring and mid to late summer are ideal times to boost your rose bushes.
Prune lightly anytime to maintain shape. If a heavy pruning is required do this in late winter or early spring.
