    Any sort of compost that has been properly broken down (decomposed), is moist (not soggy or dry), is spongy, and has a pleasant, earthy smell will do as a compost for your roses. If you don't already have some homemade compost, buy some garden soil (that specifically says it has compost in it) to use in your container.
