Early February is a good time to purchase and plant miniature roses. This gives them plenty of time to get established before the summer heat. Miniature roses need holes a minimum of 12 inches wide and deep. If you are planting them in pots, I prefer planting them in pots at least 16 inches in diameter and 14-16 inches tall. Be sure to have good drainage. In the summer, roses just like humans would prefer some afternoon shade.
