• Choose the right container. Any container with drainage holes is ideal. Half barrels work perfectly!
• Use good potting mix. Add enriching compose to improve water-holding ability.
• Water your roses regularly. Soil should be moist but not wet.
• Feed frequently. This will encourage more blooms. First feed should be in spring with first new growth; then again each time there is a flush of blooms, usually at intervals of about 4 to 6 weeks. Stop fertilising in colder areas, about 8 weeks before the first frost.
• Prune as usual to shape, deadhead and control disease and insects.
