Planting And Care

Slow release or organic fertilizers applied to the ground are the most effective; however foliar feeds are also valuable for a quick effect and to help keep the leaves healthy.

Mulching with organic matter (a very wide range is available) is a very important part of rose growing, helping to conserve water, keeping the ground cool, and feeding the micro-organisms and worms in the soil.

Regular watering is essential, the rose will be stronger, healthier, and, most importantly, produce more flowers.

Early spring is the best time to prune and cut 1/4 inch above a bud eye so the bud eye doesn’t dry out.
