What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.
Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.
