Are you ready to experience the sweet smell of Rose-Growing-Success, but is wondering what you are doing wrong?
Choose the right place in your garden to plant your roses. They will need plenty of sunshine and wind protection if they are in an open windy location.
Preparing a good planting site for your roses provides ideal growing conditions for companion plants too. Some rose lovers choose to grow miniature roses around the base of full-sized rose bushes; others enjoy pairing their roses with annuals, perennials and bulbs.
Underplanting your roses with spring flowering bulbs, adds color and beauty to your flower beds when the roses don't look their best.
Give your roses lots of room to grow to their natural growth habit and allow for good air circulation.
Roses also need beds of well-drained sandy clay-loam soil with a pH between 6.5 to 7.5 (slightly acidic to slightly alkaline.)
Put a few shovels of well-composted horse or cow manure around your roses after planting, and every spring, and your roses will really thrive. Add a 2 inch layer of mulch and watch the roses bloom with abundance.
And here is another good rose gardening advice that is very useful:
Sprinkle some Epsom Salt around the base of your roses and scratch it into the soil. Follow by deep watering
directly to the base of the rose.
Canes on climbing roses should be tied horizontally in order to produce more flowers, which will sprout vertically along the horizontally growing canes.
Climbing roses should not be pruned for the 2 years. They need time to build flowering canes so they
can produce lots of blooms.

If there is little rain during the growing season you must provide supplemental water. Always water deeply
to reach the roots and early in the morning.
This is a great rose gardening advice for rose hedges. To keep rose hedges in bounds and well shaped, use regular hedge trimmers. I like the electrical hedge trimmers for speed and a more even attractively shaped rose hedge.
Container grown roses transplants well at any time during the season, even when they are blooming. Set
them where you want to plant them, and adjust the spacing to give them adequate room.
Follow these helpful rose gardening advice and tips for growing roses and you will be successful growing beautiful roses.
