Growing Roses in Hot Climate
We stay in a flat and receive morning sunlight till about 9 am. After which the sun is behind the flat. But the temperature of 50 degrees persists from 11 am till about 4 pm. The flat we stay in has central a/c. How do I manage the rose plants if I plant them in a pot, and what should be the size of the pot?
If the roses are mini roses, then a pot about 10 to 12 inches in diameter should give them lots of room to grow. If regular rosebushes, you will want a pot that is 20 to 24 inches in diameter. Make sure the pots have drainage holes in them. If they do have a saucer at the bottom to catch the water, remember to dump the water out of it after 30 to 45 minutes. Otherwise it will make the root zone soggy and that will lead to alot of problems. Place the pots where they will get good morning sunshine, try to find a place where they will get at least 5 hours of good sunlight. 50 degrees is really not all that warm so they should do fine.
