Grocery store minis

Since there is no lack of posts about these little roses, and great advice about saving them, I thought I would post of pics of what I've done with my rescued mini-roses. This bed is 4'x5' and is now the home of 12 small bushes (10 of which I think will survive) plus 4 lavenders and 8 perennial dianthus. The minis were all supposed to be red or red/white striped but a random pink got in there (in bloom now). The big rock will someday be home to a fountain I am building.

I have 10 miniatures I got from the grocery store. They were all much nicer than the ones I've seen at the nurseries. I have mine in pots though.

Very pretty setup! I have a few stripped minis but they look a bit different. I absolutely love mini rose bushes.

I have never purchased any minis from the grocery store. I got most of my minis this year from earl may and menards. I will have to keep my eyes open at the grocery store now!

Lovely! I do like your bed and it will look stunning with a fountain in the middle.
I adore my grocery-store minis. I have several that are more than a decade old blooming vigorously -- they are some of my most rewarding garden plants! You can see some of these ancient specimens on the right lining the front walk behind the yarrow.

Tommy, we have been lucky this year...it's the coolest summer I've seen since moving here from N Wisconsin in the late 80s.

SanRosa, that is a truely lovely photo! Love how the beds step back all the way to the fence and the hollyhocks everywhere.

RE: Grocery store minis

Thank you.
The hollyhocks are pesky but charming -- as long as I get them up before they get seedy and weedy. Quite a chore!
