Default Miniature roses

I bought three miniature roses, two for my border and one for the deck. Can you give me any advise on the care of these plants. When they have to be pruned, what to feed them etc. Thanks for the help. Brendy

Miniature roses are pretty hardy. If you give them
a good start (don't stint on watering in summer), they'll
probably do fine. Any good potting soil should work
for the one on the deck. If you can get the type of
soil that has slow release fertilizer in it, that works.
You can use that in the ground (border), too. Roses
tend to like a more acidic soil but minis tend not to be
too fussy.

I use a mix of organic (seaweed, alfalfa tea) and
non-organic (Miracle Gro, Peters) fertilizer for all
my roses and they seem to do ok.

Roses need sun, even miniatures, preferably 6 hours
or more.

Miniatures are pretty easy to prune. You can just cut
them shorter as needed. even with hedge clippers - but
give them a chance to get well established. I.e., if you
plant them now, you can probably leave them alone
(except for pruning obviously dead canes) until next spring.

Do you know what kind of minis you bought? Just
curious.
