Roses in a Raised Bed?
I have a 4'x4', 8" high raised bed that my son built for me from a Sunset mag plan. I grew vegetables in it for 2 seasons with only meager success. In October I turned over the soil and saw it had fungus!! So I dumped it all and the bed has sat empty since.
If I filled it with new dirt and planted bareroot roses, would that work? This location does get 6 hrs of sun. How many roses could, no, should I put in that small space - say, 4 floribundas? Or would it be more interesting to raise one huge specimen rose -- and if so, which one??
The raised bed occupies a fairly prominent place, so whatever I put there will be very visible.
