if there is a place for them, I have successfully "heeled in" roses for the winter, removed from pots and planted temporarily in garden soil and covered with about 8" of mulch. just make sure they get watered once a month if you live in arid conditions.

Our tips for rose care

1. Use a rose soil mix

Roses need special care and require a specific kind of organic rose mix. Roses also prefer a pH that is between 6.5 and 7, which is slightly acidic to neutral (7 being neutral).

2. Remember to fertilize them

Roses are hungry plants and need to be fertilized regularly to reach their full blooming potential. A natural based fertilizer with (like 5-5-5) works best.

3. Prune at a 45° angle

By pruning at a 45° angle, you can make sure water runs off the cut instead of collecting there. This helps prevent disease or mold from growing on your rose bushes.

4. Water often and early

Most roses need to be watered daily. Set watering time completion prior to sunrise. Avoid fungal diseases like black spot by using drip irrigation to keep the leaves from getting wet.

It's good to know that potted roses require additional watering and fertilizing. I saw this house while visiting my family that was decorated with a bunch of potted plants. Since then, I've wanted to try it out.
