Rose Care

To provide care for your roses and ensure you get the most out of your roses, there are a few simple steps you can take to have a beautiful and easy-to-enjoy garden.

Water Adequately

The actual frequency of watering will depend on your soil and climate as well as the age of the plant. Try watering the soil around your rose a few mornings a week - water slowly, until the soil is thoroughly soaked 12 to 18 inches deep. Try to keep water from splashing onto foliage.

Feed Regularly

The easiest way to remember when to feed your roses, is to think of fertilizer like a reward for the plant: the first feeding should be done when the bush first leafs out. For the remainder of the growing season, fertilize after each flush of blooms ("Good job rose, here's a treat!"). You can use any commercial rose food or general-purpose fertilizer or Can apply NPK with a solution of 5 grams per litre weekly.

Mulch Generously

Mulch, as an element to rose care, helps minimize weeds, keeps the soil moist and loose, and adds essential nutrients. Organic mulch is best - try wood chips and shavings, shredded bark, pine needles, cottonseed or cocoa-bean hulls, chipped oak leaves or peat nuggets. Apply in the spring just as the soil warms and before weeds start to grow. (It can also be applied anytime during the growing season provided weeds are removed and soil surface is lightly cultivated.) Spread 2 to 4 inches over the rose bed, leaving some space open around the base of each rose. Replace mulch as it deteriorates during the year.

Prevent Pests

The best pest prevention for roses is achieved by selecting top-quality plants and then properly caring for them. There are Neem based pesticide available in the market or can use

Prune to Promote Blooms

If you want to maximize rose care, don't be nervous about pruning - there is no evidence that anyone ever killed a plant with pruning shears! Pruning roses controls the size and shape of rose plants. Generous pruning creates bigger plants and eventually more flowers per plant. Selective pruning of top growth can produce bigger, but fewer, blooms.

Here are some tips:

For modern varieties, pruning keeps them blooming repeatedly all summer long.

Well-established hybrid teas, floribundas and grandifloras should be pruned early each spring after the winter protection has been removed and just as the buds begin toswell.

Old-fashioned roses and climbers should be pruned immediately after flowering since they bloom on wood from the previous year's growth.
