Two daughters want to grow roses in pots. None of us have experience.
What do we need to know? We've already been reading and asking, but I
hoped that we'd get some good advice here, too.
They've bought bareroot varieties 'Oklahoma' and 'CL Golden Showers'.
Some particular questions:
* What size pot? I've got different answers to this question already.
* Can we successfully add other plants to the rose pots, or would they
hinder the roses? And if we can, which other plants?
* Do we really need the specialty soil labelled for roses, or can
generic potting soil work?
* Anything else that we likely don't know.
