    Where I live, here in Northern Colorado, tree roses are pretty much considered annuals as they do not survive the winters here. Part of that is because they are "built" rosebushes and are not natural or typically grafted rosebushes. Here is a link to an article I wrote on Tree Roses that may help you understand more about them: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/learn-more-about-tree-roses.htm . Also contacting a local Rose Society and asking them how to care for tree roses in your area is a very good thing to do. Here is a link to the New England Rose Society website for you: http://www.rosepetals.org/ .

    It is best to wait now until the early spring to plant the mini roses outside as they need some time to get their roots established. Once they have been planted outside and gotten their roots established they should do okay. You really do not treat these roses any different than any other rosebushes. Please check out my articles here at Gardening Know How on Rose Planting and Rose Care for more information, here is a link to one that should be helpful to you:

    The portulaca plants are warm weather plants for sure. All of mine have died back now. But if your plant had time to bloom a few times then it also had time to make seeds. Mine come back every year from the seed generated by the plants during the previous year. I even get some new little plants in areas where I never had them before, so the seed must move around well. I have also purchased the seed for the plants and sprinkled that in the areas I wanted some to grow and they came up nicely. Those were graveled areas too and all I did was sprinkle the seeds and lightly rock the gravel back and forth with a hard toothed rake! So don't worry about trying to keep the plant alive, if it had time to make seeds it should come back fine when the warmer to hot weather returns.

    Watermelon tend to grow very long and are not suited to growing upside down. You may want to consider growing them up instead if you are looking to save space. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/growing-a-vertical-vegetable-garden.htm

    Most ficus that are grown as houseplants are not cold hardy outside in the winter. It would be best to keep them indoors for the winter. But, in the spring and summer, you can keep them outside in containers.
