QVC MINI ROSE

Very nice pic! I'd love to grow roses, especially mini roses but I've almost completely run out of space in my "garden" -

So, Welcome to GW Donnanne! Are you brand new to the forums or are you a serial lurker as so many others are?

2 yrs. I've been here but was very intimidated when I saw the other pics. I also posted another pic along with this one on the rose gallery under the same heading. It is a pic of my circus just starting to open up. I'm surprised their doing so well with all the rain we've had.
I never thought the mini's were going to get so large but just found out that mini means the size of the rose. Thanks for the welcome. Donna

Hi Donna - I too was intimidated at first by some of the other pics & posts but after receiving such nice praise about my amateur pics & some of the funny things people say about their own pics I decided to Go For It! I have a mini-rose question for you, as I understand it most roses require a lot of direct Sun to thrive, my Mom's grow like crazy up in VA on the south side of their house. If you've seen the pics of my 'garden' you probably know my space is limited & the amount of direct Sun even more so. I was able to successfully grow tomatoes this spring & am wondering if I could grow mini-roses in containers in or near the same location. More ?s : how big do the plants get & do they handle pruning well & the big question is will they be OK in FL with the heat, humidity & lack of a real winter?
Thanks again & show us some more pics!

A very nice picture indeed! Well worth posting. Thank you. I only have three rose bushes on 10 acres. Perhaps I should grow some more.
