- A rose is a woody perennial flowering plant of the genus Rosa, in the family Rosaceae, or the flower it bears.
- There are over three hundred species and tens of thousands of cultivars.
- They form a group of plants that can be erect shrubs, climbing, or trailing, with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles.
- Slightly Acidic to Neutral.
- Keep your plant in top form by feeding it every few weeks with a dilute solution of liquid fertiliser or soild fertiliser over the soil.
- Full Sun.
- Diligently water your roses.
- Soak the entire root zone at least twice a week in dry summer weather.
- Avoid frequent shallow sprinklings, which won’t reach the deeper roots and may encourage fungus.
- In the fall reduce the amount of water, but do not allow roses to completely dry out.
- Roses love water—but don’t drown them.
- That is, they don’t like to sit in water, and they’ll die if the soil is too wet in winter.
- The ideal soil is rich and loose, with good drainage.
- One of the worst mistakes you can make is to not provide adequate drainage.
- Use mulch.
- To help conserve water, reduce stress, and encourage healthy growth, apply a 2- to 4-inch layer of chopped and shredded leaves, grass clippings, or shredded bark around the base of your roses.
- Allow about 1 inch of space between the mulch and the base stem of the plant.
