Container size for own-root roses
I used to keep all my roses in pots because I was anticipating a move.
How large a container do you keep various types of roses in? Some beautiful photos of healthy roses posted show them in fairly small looking pots--maybe 5-7 gallon.
And do you like commercial potting soil? I'm starting lean towards that. I have to make my own media anyway so it's sounding like an easier solution.
I used to grow a lot of ogrs in 15-20 gallon nursery containers. I had rich black clay amended with leaf mold & rotted manure.
A lot of my new plants are own root HTs & floribundas. I'm thinking that they might do just fine in 5-7 gallon pots for a good while as long as I have them in quality moisture retentive soil & keep them watered well. I picked up a bunch of sacks of Miracle Grow garden soil & HapiGro landscapers mix (mostly pine fines) on sale. Boy, that would be easy to just dump that stuff in a pot & stick the plants in compared to chiseling out holes in the caliche right now.
