Rose in winter
I got this rose bush as a present at the beginning of the Summer, so I don't know what variety it is. It has been easy to look after so far (I have no experience) and has bloomed twice. I'm wondering what the best thing to do for it is now that the weather is getting colder.

Roses are not happy longterm in a pot, as they are deep-rooting plants and tend to dry out quickly when the roots fill the pot. But it will be okay fora few years, as long as you water and feed it with something like Miraclegrow.
It is hardy and will get through winter outdoors, although the leaves will fall off. Next year it will grow bigger and you may get some indicatiion from that as to which type of rose it is.
