Where do I start to make a solarium?



I don't just love roses but I have always had gardens full of them and I cut then and bring them in all summer I have moved to a condominum Apartmen on the 11th floor in Brampton, Ontario and it has 2 bedrooms and a solarium....I close my eyes and think of how much beautiful sunrises and sunsets I see and I am bipolar manic depressant but suicide free for 9 years on the 21st of April but my solarium would be a plant heaven if I knew where to start...all the one side of the windows bring the sun beaming in.....I am thinking of buying a big pot and buying a rose bush to see if it will grow but there is room for so much like hanging plants and plant stands. I just have no idea how to start this room but it could be my happy room full of beautiful flowers to make me smile and I love looking after them. Does someone have an idea of what I could do I will try to find a picture of the solarium.

    Sandra...Congrats on you successful progress with your bipolar! May God continue to watch over you and keep it under control. Your roses sound beautiful and the room you have in mind would be wonderful for you. I would begin with the large pot and try planting a bush to see how it does. I would also talk with someone from a nursery and discuss with them what your ideas are. I believe they will be able to help you make this room "your happy space". God bless your continued good health!

    There are so many beautiful rose bushes out there now and some are prolific bloomers. A hanging plant like a fuschia or hanging begonia would look lovely and do well in that room. You will have to watch the watering so it might be wise to invest in a plant water meter which tells you when the soil is dry or wet. They are less than $20.00. Keep healthy!!

    Maybe start with a small shelf unit to put plants on maybe some hook brackets to hang plants
