Growing Pretty Polly Roses

To grow roses in pots, it is best to use good quality, peat free, soil-based compost. During the growing season, don't let their pots dry out, and give them a liquid feed about once per week to once per fortnight.

Trim your patio roses only lightly for their first couple of years while they settle in, then prune them as you would a floribunda in early spring to keep them plump and bushy: remove twiggy growth, then prune the main stems by about a third, down to a suitable bud or lateral stem. 
At the same time as you prune a mature patio rose, it is good to pull them out every few years, refresh the compost, and put them back in the pot, or in a bigger one if you started off small.

Repeating roses should be dead headed to keep them flowering strongly.
