Need Rose Suggestions for a Small Pot Ghetto Please
Last night, my hubby suggested that I start a small pot garden on the balcony outside of our master suite. He told me that he would run the irrigation to the area so the roses would be watered automatically. I grow very few roses in pots, actually, only two, because I like the idea of plant it once and there it stays. His feeling sorry for me and making the suggestion, combined with my coveting of many roses seems to have perfect timing!
The issues is, I tend to be a plant it, feed it , prune it gardener. If anything attacks my roses that cannot generally be stopped with a good spray of water or homemade insecticidal soap, then it has no place in my garden. I am hoping to find two or three fragrant roses that can survive for a while in a decent size pot 20-22" (4 years?), that have enough heat tolerance to handle the summers here. SDLM comes to mind, but I already have a handful of those. Do you all have any suggestions?
