As mini roses are smaller and more delicate than standard roses, some think that miniature rose bush care is even more difficult. This is not necessarily true. As with anything worthwhile in life, properly caring for roses is a matter of educating yourself and paying attention to a few key details.
How to Care for Miniature Rose Bushes
The care of your mini will primarily depend on the rose type as well as where it is planted. Some rose plants are bred to be miniature in both size and blooms.

Then again, a rose plant can have miniature blooms and also be classified as a shrub rose, a climbing rose, or a carpet rose.
If your rose plant is grown outdoors, simply follow the same procedure for rose bush care that you would for one that is of a standard size: plenty of sun, plenty of water, enriched soil along with deadheading and pruning when appropriate. (Remember that climbing rose bush care is different than for a standard shrub rose.)
