Potted Minature Roses, can I plant these outside?

I recently planted roses for the first time around a bird bath and came here for suggestions, now I would appreciate any tips on if and/or how I can plant these roses that I got for Valentine's Day.

Can I plant this kind of rose outside and if so, about how big will these plants get?

It didn't give much information with them, any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Yes you can plant them outside. Some of them make pretty good garden plants, and some are not. It's the luck of the draw. Roses definitely need to be outside--they are poor house plants.

However, WHEN you can plant them outside depends on your climate. They've been babied in a warm green house before you got them. Putting them outside in freezing temperatures right now is not going to work. How cold is it outside where you are? What growing zone are you in? That matters.

Hi Hoovb,

I am in south Florida, it was quite warm here, we didn't have much of a winter, it has been in the 80's.

I'm so glad they can be planted outside, I will have to get soil and compost again, mostly sand around here.

Not sure how big they get or how far apart to plant them, maybe two feet apart?

Thank you for your reply!
