The success of your roses depends a great deal on the conditions in which they are grown.

Most roses need plenty of direct sun light every day during the growing season.

They also need rich, fertile, and moist soil, that drains well.

Along with good air circulation, ample growing room, and protection from harsh elements.

Sunlight For Roses

Roses need at least 6 hours of direct sun per day to grow and flower the best.

Morning sun is the best, since it dries off the foilage early, thereby reducing the chance of disease.

It is also less likely than afternoon sun to burn leaves and flowers, especially in hot climates.

Roses that are not recieving enough sun will show spindly growth and have thin, weak canes. And the flower production will be poor.

Some types of roses tolerate more shade than others.

Hybrid musks and miniature roses, for example, can grow and bloom in less sun than others.

How Much Water Do The Roses Need?

Although roses will survive with less than optimal watering, they will not produce lush growth and large, richly colored rose flowers with thick petals.

So be sure to give your roses adequate moisture, and never let them dry out between watering.

Fertilizing Roses

There is no one perfect way to fertilize roses. Having said that, you need to know that roses are heavy feeders.

To thrive, roses need 13 elemental nutrients, plus oxygen, carbon and hydrogen from the air.

Be sure to buy fertilizers, such as Miracle Grow Rose Foood, that have all the nutrients for maximum growth and flower productions.

I feed my roses every 3 weeks during the growing season. Container roses should be fed every week.
