They actually crowd several small bush miniatures into the pot for the maximum number of flowers, the ppoor things are massively overcrowded in those pots, so no wonder they flower and die!
Big C knows I love flowers, he knows that I prefer them alive, and he knows that I have discovered the miniature rose secret...
so look what I got for our anniversary:
Not just a pot of roses, but eight beautiful red miniature rose plants!
Long live roses!
