Grown in pots and containers, roses are great for bringing colour and scent right up to your door.
Shorter growing bush varieties or 'patio roses' are ideal. They'll do best in large, deep containers – an absolute minimum of 50cm in diameter and the same in depth – to keep their roots cool and moist during summer.
In hot, dry weather, be sure to give them a good soaking every two to three days, and keep them in tip-top condition with our ways to grow better roses.
