For the past two mornings, I have been tending to my potted roses. There are about 200 roses in pots, all waiting patiently to have a permanent place in the garden. Each rose in its turn is getting a spruce up ... I'm pulling weeds, refreshing potting mix, trimming any dead branches, touching up the labels, etc. What a difference!
(In response to a comment, I am editing this post to add: Most potting mixes are made of almost all organic materials, like peat or sphagnum or bark. Organics break down over time, sometimes losing half a pot's volume, and plants sink down and settle. This is what happened in many of my potted roses. To raise the roses back up to the original level, I tipped each rose out of the pot, added a few handfuls of potting mix to the bottom of the pot, replaced the rose and top-dressed with more potting mix.)
