When most people think of roses, they are thinking of the most popular type of rose, which is the hybrid tea rose. These are the roses that you see out at the florists on Valentines Day, and this is namely because they are so easy to cut and take care of.

Normally a hybrid tea has a large bloom at the end of a long cane, and they are generally uptight growing plants from 3-6 feet tall and the blooms are available in most colors, except for blue and black.

Then there are floribunda roses, which are less common but still quite well-known, and the floribundas were once called hybrid polyanthas. In the late 1940s, the term floribunda was approved, and is now the most commonly used term to refer to these particular roses.

They are typically smaller growing rose plants that have smaller blooms, and which tend to come in clusters. There are some however in which the bloom comes singly, however you really have to look around carefully in order to find these.

Gardening Tip #11

Some plants require re-potting for optimum growth but there are others that resent having their roots disturbed. Or their roots system may be small enough that they don't require re-potting. One way to check if your plant needs re-potting is to turn it upside down. Tap the pot to release the plant and check its roots. If roots are all you see, then re-pot. Sometimes the roots will come out of the pot. You should either cut them off or re-pot the plant.
