Top Gardening Rose Tip

Only buy healthy plants from a reputable nursery or grower. Avoid so called discount deals, as these roses are likely being "dumped" for a reason.

Be sure to choose easy to grow roses with great resistance to rose diseases.

Select rose plants that do well in your area and climate zone. All roses are not created equal.

Choose a site in your garden that gets at least 6 hours of direct sun per day, starting with morning sun.

Plant in an area with good air circulation to prevent disease. Avoid overcrowding, so plant roses 3 feet apart.

Soil Preparation

Prepare the rose soil with plenty of organic matter, such as composted manure, before planting. Add some bone meal and alfalfa pellets to the planting hole. Finish with scratching in some epsom salts on the surface.

Water thouroughly to reach the roots.

The soil should be loose and not compacted. Roses do not like "wet feet". Good drainage is of the utmost importance.

Feed with a good fertilizer for roses to promote an abundance of flowers.
