Patio Roses in Pots — 13 Comments

  1. At this moment in time,Alistair , whilst I am looking out at my scorched brown lawn and feeling uncomfortably sweaty, the thought of Scottish gardening, Scottish rain and Scottish lushness fills me with hope for my future gardening!

  2. Reading your blog is a peaceful pleasure. Thanks

  3. Wonderful collection of patio roses Alistair.
    I especially love your Patio Rose Snow Bunny. They remind me rose Swany, but yours are bigger than Swany.
    All the best!

  4. The patio roses are in ceramic tubs and I use a good garden compost with 30% John Innes added. The others are in plastic pots. As I mentioned they are placed in their positions at appropriate times.

  5. Beautiful! To clarify, you have the patio roses, daffodils, tulips, and chrysanthemums all in plastic tubs and then bring them out to slip into pots at the right time? And what kind of soil and amendments do you use for the patio roses? Our patio is sunny and our summer temperatures can be in the 90’s so I’m not sure these lovely patio roses would be happy here. Thank you!

  6. Alistair, they are all stunning. I do believeThat Peter Beales and David Austin are the only roses to buy. I bought some Tesco’s roses, lol, I’ll say no more!! I’m hoping to move up to Scotland in a couple of years, the dryness Of the soil and the heat down here is so difficult to cope with in terms of gardening.
