Questions & Answers

can they flourish as a potted plant?

Asked by BC April 18, 2016

Answer

Hello, the Rose would prefer to be planted in the ground but will also grow in a pot. It should be planted into a pot with holes in the bottom for drainage and should be watered each time the soil becomes dry (test with your finger about 4" down into the soil). They should be fertilized at least once a year with Rose fertilizer. It is best to follow the instructions on the fertilizer bag itself.

I'm concerned about red rosette virus

Answer

Hello. Red Rosette Virus is spread by eriophyid mites, most likely from nearby wild multiflora rose plants. Adult females overwinter in the cracks and crevices of the branches and twigs, making their home on the leaves in summer. The soil does not transmit disease. In the nursery, regular miticide applications are applied.

Can I grow knockout rose plant in a large container?

Asked by sunshine August 13, 2014

Answer

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, a Knockout Rose can be grown in a large pot. Be sure there are drainage holes for water to leak out, as the plant does not appreciate sitting in wet soils. It will probably be necessary to water more frequently because pots quickly dry out from the wind and sun. Knockout Roses are very hardy, but when the temperatures are below freezing, it is a good practice to bring the pot indoors to an enclosed, unheated space.

Product arrived packed well. We followed the instructions as directed. The plant did not survive after 3 weeks. The leaves turned brown and eventually died. Not sure it should be shipped so early in its "life." We have other box roses which we bought locally. But this item was out of stock in the local Home Depot....so we ordered it on line. Totally disappointed.

This plant was healthy upon arrival, nice deep green leaves awaiting the flowers to appear. It was a little small in packaging, I wish I could have received a little larger.
