Plant Care Tips
Planting InstructionsRoses can be planted any time of the year, but it is best to plant them in spring or early summer in order to get nice results. Choose a spot that will receive at least six hours of full sun. The more sun you have, the more flowers your roses will produce. Roses grown in partial sun may not die, but they weaken gradually, producing subpar blooms and overwintering poorly. Roses need a soil that drains well but holds onto moisture long enough for the roots to absorb it. They prefer loose, loamy, sometimes sandy soil. If your soil is dense and compacted, it's best to amend your soil with compost or manure prior to planting. It's also a good idea to top off your soil with mulch in order to retain moisture and prevent weeds, but keep about 2-3 inches around the stem clear. Dig a large hole (at least 15-18 inches) and loosen the roots of the rose before planting. Be sure to water deeply.
General Care DescriptionDeadhead religiously and keep beds clean. Every leaf has a growth bud, so removing old flower blossoms encourages the plant to make more flowers instead of using the energy to make seeds. Remove any debris around the rose bush that can harbor disease and insects. Depending on the type of fertilizer you choose, roses should be fertilized about every four to six weeks.
Effort of Care
Needs at least six hours of direct sunlight.
Diligently water your roses. Soak the entire root zone at least twice a week in dry summer weather. Avoid frequent shallow sprinklings, which won’t reach the deeper roots and may encourage fungus. In the fall reduce the amount of water, but do not allow roses to completely dry out. A common mistake is not provide adequate drainage.
Disease and Pests
Good gardening practices, such as removing dead leaves and canes, will help reduce pests, but be sure to watch for Japanese beetles, aphids, black spot, spider mites, thrips, rust, and blight. If you live in an area with deer around, it's a good idea to buy repellent. One of the most common problems with roses is powdery mildew.
