Miniature roses ideal for gardens
You've just got to try some !
Prepare a small garden bed in an
area that receives at least five hours
of sun. Make sure you have good
drainage. Dig a hole, fill with water,
and make sure it drains out within a
Your new roses will probably
arrive in plastic containers. Water as
soon as they are received.
Place the plants in a hole four in
ches wide and six inches deep into
which you have sprinkled bone meal
and fertilizer. The rose should be V*
to Vi inch deeper than the soil level of
the root ball. Water thoroughly.
Never allow roses to dry out. Water
wisely: soak the area to a depth of
eight inches instead of sprinkling
now and then ? a most unwise
Fertilize minis with half as much
fertilizer twice as often. As for
diseases, prevention is easier than
curing. Get in the habit of spraying or
dusting every week to ten days.
Ortho makes a control which
protects roses from rose diseases
blackspore powdery mildew, and
rust. It is officially endorsed by the
American Rose Society, the oldest
horticultural society in the world.
That's good enough for me.
Established plants should be heavily
pruned in the spring and mounded
with soil by late November for winter
Miniatures are excellent in formal
garden beds where a regular rose
would provide too much bulk. For
instance, in a half-shaped area
measuring approximately four feet
by five, I planted two 'Summer
Butters,' two 'Orange Cascade' and a
Miniatures may be grown in
containers such as hanging baskets
and window boxes. If plants are
grown indoors, keep in a sunny spot
on a tray of wet pebbles or sand.
Water every two to three days and
fertilize monthly. (Yellow leaves
indicate dryness.) Put the plant in
the fridge during June.
