Today we’re headed to Kerala, India, to enjoy some beautiful blooms from Sreeja Sarathkumar’s rose garden.

Roses will thrive in large containers, and this can be a great way to enjoy plants if you don’t have a traditional garden space.

    So very pretty - I wonder if they have trouble with Japanese beetles there? I love roses and have a few in my gardens but really battle the beetles.

    So nice the way you grew so many nice colorful roses in your garden space!
    You give me the courage to try the same with growing them in pots!
    Keep up the nice work!
