The Container Rose Garden

By Joannabanana

Container gardening has become quite popular and is not limited to annuals alone. I started container gardening with a couple of hybrid tea roses about 10 years ago. Since then, my collection of container roses has expanded from a couple to about 20 pots. Hybrid tea roses, floribunda roses, small shrub roses, and miniatures are all fantastic in containers.

I have a bunch of baby roses coming in and they will be in pots for at least this season since I have no place for them. This article was filled with great ideas for how to display them, which was my main dilemma. Love the pot beds and the combination plant ideas.

One question: What are the epsom salts for?
