Container Gardening has become extremely popular over the last couple of years. There is a lot of different flowers, herbs, and vegetables than can be planted in containers. Roses are one of those who thrive in containers, it is beautiful and can be placed where space is limited, which is a good thing about container gardening. In this article, we will show you what we think is the best container for roses.
What makes a good Rose Container?
When you are doing container gardening you need to make sure you have proper drainage. As we do not plant directly into the garden, we need to help the soil with proper drainage. Some of the Containers do have preinstalled drainage and some we need to make it yourself. Which is easy. So do not worry too much about that. You can add your drainage by drilling some holes in the bottom of the container.
We recommend finding one with preinstalled drainage just to make our lives easier. However, if you already have a container in the right size and style go ahead and save some money by doing it yourself.
When having no or bad drainage the soil can become to wet which will result in rotten roots.
You may think of roses as a little flower and therefore choose a small and pretty container, however we need to give place to a large root system that roses have. Therefore we always recommend going with the bigger container than you first thought of. Having a larger Container will give the roses room to grow and not stress the roots. The other plus by having a big container is that you will not have to water your plants as often as the larger amount of soil will hold more water.
We recommend going for a container with the size from 8 to 15 gallons.
