Is growing a rose in a container different from growing a rose in the ground? What roses are best for containers? How do you care for them? What kind of potting soil should be used? What is potting soil made of? Are all potting soils the same? How do you choose the right one?

Come and find out the answers to these and other questions. While the talk focuses on roses, the principles apply to other ornamental shrubs and flowers in the garden.
