Caring for roses can be easy and enjoyable if you follow these three basic routines throughout the growing season:
1. Regular watering. At least 1” per week, that’s approximately three gallons per plant.
2. Regular fertilizing. Feed your roses once a month, using a complete (e.g. 10-10-10) granular fertilizer. Feed twice a month if using a liquid feed.
3. Regular disease control. Spray your roses once a week to prevent fungus, mainly blackspot.
If you follow the above routines consistently, your roses will reward you with an abundance of beautiful blooms and many years of enjoyment.
