You can grow hybrid tea roses in containers but they will have to be protected during the winter months. Roots in above ground containers can freeze solid in your winter weather. So, moving the containers into a storage shed or unheated garage will be necessary. You can plant your roses in a 15" to 20" deep and wide container filled with potting soil. Or, plant miniature roses and take them into your house over the winter months. These will easily grow in an 8-12" one-gallon sized container. Enjoy your roses!
