Miniature Rose Care Guide


Please read and follow the instructions below carefully to keep your plant healthy. Thoroughly water your new plant upon arrival, but do not over water.


Remove faded blooms to encourage reblooming.


Display your miniature roses in a well-ventilated area that gets at least 4 hours of bright, indirect light each day and, ideally, maintains a temperature around 70°F.


Keep soil moist but not soggy. To water, remove the plant from its basket or outer container, water over a sink, and allow the pot to drain before returning to its container.

Apply complete liquid fertilizer at half strength every 4 weeks throughout the growing and flowering season, typically late spring to late fall.

Jackson & Perkins offers a selection of fertilizer & plant care products for roses.

Rose Gifts


Remove any dead or yellow leaves.


Miniature roses may be moved outside when the bloom display has finished and the chance of frost has passed. Select an area in your garden that has good drainage and receives at least 6 hours of sun each day. Or transplant your rose into a larger pot and enjoy on a sunny porch or patio.

IMPORTANT: Ornamental plant material should not be eaten. Keep away from pets and children.
