Potted Roses & Rose Plants FAQs
When should you send potted roses?
Potted roses make a great choice for almost any occasion in which sending roses is traditional. The difference between potted roses and cut roses is that the recipient can enjoy your gift for years to come! Potted roses are an especially good gift for those who love house plants, or enjoy gardening. They make wonderful birthday roses and are available in various shades. Choose the recipient’s favorite color rose or one that complements her décor. They also serve as lovely anniversary roses.
Potted roses are a versatile gift. A potted roses delivery serves as a good corporate gift. Colleagues who decide to keep their roses in the office boost the ambiance. Do you have someone you want to thank or congratulate? A potted roses delivery sends the message you want to convey. Other possibilities include gifts for:
Welcome to the neighborhood
Get Well Soon
Good luck in your new home
You really can’t go wrong sending potted roses. They are one of those gifts that are always appreciated and suitable for just about everyone. Whether placed in a window box, hanging basket planter, put in the garden or gracing a window, these roses provide beauty and a fragrant aroma. Even if your space is limited, potted roses allow you to have your own rose garden on a patio or windowsill.
Which roses grow best in pots?
Most varieties of roses can be grown in pots. As long as you have an appropriately-sized pot, you should be able to grow just about any rose. However, if you want to keep the project low-maintenance, then the best roses for pots are generally miniature and shrub roses. These are often easier to maintain and transport than roses that grow to be very tall. Here at Proflowers, we offer high-quality roses for delivery, so you can be certain you’ll get the right roses for your pot. From elegant white roses to stunning purple flowers, we have it all.
Can roses survive winter in pots?
It depends on the climate you live in. If you live in an area that experiences harsh, brutal winters, then it's likely that your potted rose bush won't be able to make it through the winter months. On the other hand, if you live in an area that experiences milder winters, your potted roses should be able to survive, provided you prepare them for colder conditions. To prep your potted roses, you could bury the pot in the ground, add a layer of fertilizer to the pot or even move it to an indoor area to protect it from frost.
How do you care for potted rose plants?
Potted roses generally require a similar level of care as most other potted plants. After getting your rose bush delivered, here are a few care tips to follow:
Use high-quality soil and compost when planting
Water your potted rose bush on a regular basis
Add fertilizer once the roses begin to bloom
Prune your roses regularly
Transfer your roses to a new pot after two years or so
How do you care for potted roses indoors?
If you're keeping your potted roses indoors, you can still follow the tips above, keeping in mind some extra considerations. For instance, it's best to keep your potted roses near a window where they can get a healthy amount of natural light. Also, the room the potted rose bush is in should stay between 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit at all times.
