These are the Miniature Roses in our landscape. I hope you enjoy the short video.
Hi Mike, your miniature roses are really beautiful. How about a few tips to get mine to look as good as yours. I have about 8 minis and I am green with envy upon seeing yours!
thanks for the info you have been offering these past few years. A faithful reader, Doris
These are really pretty. How well do these roases do in southeastern Texas?
Mini roses should grow fine for you in Texas, especially in the fall after the weather cools a bit.
I live along I-20 Ala-Miss and the rose I have had much success is called Granda. Smells great and turns from orange with red pink tips to a peach color in the heat. I have had people stop and ask to use them for their weddings. It is really HOT hot hot and I fed it organically with Cow manure when I planted it 15 years ago. It is 8 feet tall and blooms twice a year Fall and Spring Lee
Beautiful little roses! Mike how do you take care of them. when we bring miniature roses in a pot they die within 3-4 weeks, although I water them regularly.
Mike has another video on the site here that explains more about caring for and pruning roses, it should be helpful for you.
Also check out the “Rose Growing Tips” article at http://freeplants.com/. You’ll find it here: http://freeplants.com/rose-growing-tips.htm
Is this at the new property?
One of the things I noticed was the mulching. I think that mulching can add to the bed by creating a clean look, and serving several other purposes, without it being sterile. We in California have to be concerned about wasting water and mulching can play a big role there.
I loved the roses.
The roses are growing at Mike’s home. The new property is just a few miles away and will be the site of Mike’s new nursery.
Very nice!! I love them!
Mike, I have roses that my wife recieved in a arrangement. She has put them in water and they have started to sprout. How can I transfer these and keep the alive? I appreciate your answere in advance

Hello Mike: I hope you and Pam are having a wonderful vacation. Your miniature roses are simply beautiful. I planted one this year where it gets morning sun and afternoon shade here in zone 7. I plan to propagate it because I love the way it blooms all season. At any rate, I love being apart of your program. Earline in Henrico, VA
The Roses are beautiful, I live in Rio Grande South Texas, and I am unable to grow Roses, I do raise Cacrus and Succulents, and my hobby is out of control…Also when I purchase a rose bush, or a minature rose it dies in about 4 weeks……but your roses are absolutely beautiful……Thanks for your lstters, I enjoy them….Berniece
I love miniature roses! I have several miniature roses in my rose bed. However, your roses are way far more beautiful than the ones that I have. I really liked the varigated roses. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us. It has really helped me tremendously! God Bless you and your family!

Just gorgeous. I bought a Cecil Brunner rose three years ago and this summer was the first I got roses and were they beautiful. I know I need to cut it back, but I am not sure when. I would also really like to start some cuttings but so far I have had no like. Any help would be much appreciated.
Look for Mike’s “Pruning Rose Bushes” video right here on the blog site.
Can you give us the names of the variety of these miniature roses? I would like to put some others in my beds and really like the ones that you have.
Mike gives the names of at least some of his roses in his “Pruning Rose Bushes” video right here on the blog site.
Hi Mike, your miniature roses are gorgeous. I’d love to have some, but I live in South Florida and I don’t think the temperature we have here is good for roses. Thank you for sharing.
Beautiful!! Now when will we get YouSmellEM Tube????
…Tips, Mike, we need tips…
Mike I am not a rose person, but these are gorgeous
This was a video touted to show roses in the landscape. All there is are pictures of roses. No help in setting up a landscape.
It is wonderful Mile to see how we can attract markets .
My roses are pretty coloured at our Brains Education Centre gates.
We are now designing the Centre compound and in 3 months, the compound will be appealing to students, parents, teachers and guests.
Our centre compound is getting flower support from our nurseries and the beauty has improved the student population,
Let us share information about the environmental beauty as this lightens the heart and makes us live longer,

In our backyard nursury we want to grow shrubs and trees that produce colorful flowers that are fragrant if possible. These tiny rose bushes are ideal for our plans. Do they root well and are they practical? We live in a valley by the Pacific ocean, surrounded by redwoods mostly, in zone 9. Our weather is mild, both summer and winter.
Glad ypu had a good time on your vacation. My Tropicana Rose turned wild last year. I cut it down this year. The color was purple. I had one blossom from another one and it was beautiful. The deer even left it alone. This year I will try to plant some new ones. What kind of plant food do they need. I live in Washington so we get a lot of rain. Thanks for the nice letter about Bronson.
mike please give all of us tips on how ours can look like yours-thanks
Watch Mike’s “Pruning Rose Bushes” here on this site for tips on how to care for these lovely little rose bushes.
I have just two Knock Off Roses and they don’t look like yours, what am I doing wrong. We have so much dry weather this year, but I keep my flowers watered and dust them. I cut the dead ones off , but I haven’ t had any blooms for a long time. Geri
I live in Southern California and have beautiful regular rose bushes, but never have success with miniature roses. Is there a trick to the miniature variety that is different?
I agree with Daryl, the video could have been a slide show. There was no shots of the shrub and location or surroundings.
I lost two miniture roses early summer due to deceases. A friend gave me a miniture red rose the beginning of summer this year, it is still living but does not look that great. Hope I can help with the information you have given. Thank you for sharing a vedio of your beautiful miniature roses Duston.
If you really want to see some roses, go to the public rose garden in Portland, Oregon. Was there around July 12th.Need to drive and search for it near their zoo, but worth the effort. Then drive and ferry to Borchert Gardens on Vancouver Island near Victoria, British Columbia.I’ve been a gardener, now farmer , all my life and visited gardens all over from Longwood to Hollywood.Worked in greenhouses,commercial growers, been to big nurseries aroun Mike’s area of Lake county.(Talked to Girard nursery family members, My daughter is their back neighbor.)Those gardens really impressed me. Takes some doing for that!!!
I really enjoyed seeing your beautiful roses . Thanks so much .
I have a cecil brunner that Jackson and Perkins told me was not grafted but every year I have to prune down huge shoots of a rootstock that appears to be blaze. Has anyone successfully rooted cecil brunner? It is an old rose so should work since roses root easily. Chris L
Mike, These are gorgeous…but like a number of your other folks who wrote in, I don’t have very good luck, in fact no luck at all with minatures. I don’t know why. AT one time I had about 20 standard roses, but only a couple left. I think I have only one minature, and a couple that are kind of “in-betweens,” but it has been so terribly hot here this summer that not much has done very well. And I have not had a good summer physically, but I think next year will be better. Thanks for showing your readers your beautilful roses.
HI MIKE, WE HAVE A HOBBIES OF RAISING ROSES, THE OTHER DAY WE WERE OUT LOOKING THEM ALL OVER AND DISCOVERED WE HAVE SOME ROSE ROSETTE ON SOME OF THEM. (VERY DISHEARTENED). WE UNDERSTAND THERE IS NO CURE FOR THIS OTHER THAN DIGGING THEM ALL UP (ABOUT 65). WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS VIRUS GOT STARTED IN THE MIDWEST, FROM MULTAFLORA (WILD) ROSES . IT IS A MITE. YES, WE DID ORDER SOME OLD ENGLISH ROSES FROM THE MIDWEST ABOUT 2 YRS. AGO. IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEA ABOUT A FORM OF CURE BESIDE DIGGING THEM UP PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US. WE LIVE IN SOUTH CAROLINA. LEWIS AND BECKY BLACK.
Great job Dustin! Those really are beautiful
If someone is talking I can’t hear them. Roses look good but I wish I could hear it.
could you re-send it, I didn’t have any sound. Thanks, Virginia
Try updating your Flash player, then come back to the site and watch it again.
I would like to add a couple of these little roses, does anyone on your list sell them? Thanks
Mitch, we have several people in the Backyard Growers Group that sell mini roses, but you have to be a member of the group to buy from them.
I live in WNY, USDA Hardiness zone 6a and have grown miniatures. If you ever have the chance to visit the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton, Ontario..check out Hendrie Park for the roses. They grow many cultivars in every colour and the fragrance will blow you away! I’ve grown many roses over the years with great success. I find better luck with the container grown roses, though. Berniece, of South Texas…check the different varieties of roses; you may find that you can grow them. I have friends in west Texas (El Paso) that grow roses all the time.
I love your site! Thanks for all you are doing for gardeners like me.
I would like to beautify my horse stable areas and things around the place. Where can I go to find some ideas?
There are cultivars that grow in different areas….search local nurseries to see what they are selling and use Rose Pride….it is a systemic fertilizer/insecticide that works wonders on roses.
Another thing that can help poor roses is watering every couple of days but water deep instead of sprinkling every day…this seems to work well for me on all of my roses.

For roses of all sizes any advice on keeping deer from eating the plants?
Love your miniature roses, they’re beautiful! I especially like the one that looks like “Double Delight”. What is the name of it?

Gorgeous Minis. How about the names for them!
Especially the peach pink And yellow one!
HI Mike,Love to read up on info on your website.Am an avid gardener-veggies, flowers,shrubs,lawn and rock digger. Ha Ha -we fight the deer and the woodchucks all the time. ROSE BUDS ARE ONE OF OUR DEERS FAVORITE SNACKS when they cruise through our property. Thank god for Milorganite and Deer Off and deer netting – some of our beds look like a protected war zone (just kidding)
My veggie garden has fence with netting 7 feet high and we joke that each tomato has to cost$50.00 Such is the price of gardening in Connecticut across from Open Space. Still love it and think it is one of God’s gifts to man (woman included in that thought!)
Hi Mike; I come from that part of the world where roses have a special place in weddings , birthdays etc. But these roses are so beautiful. thanks for sharing. would also like to know if you can put up your video once again on plant propagation. i would very much like to propagate crape myritles. thanks.
How about those beauiful roses here in Southeast Florida (Jupiter, 30″ north of W.Palm Beach)? Thanks for letting me know.
I have a rose growing over the arbor that needs trimmed badly!! Is there a way to start new roses off of these cuttings??
