Tips for Care:

Hardy modern Shrub Roses prefer to be planted with lots of sunlight and moving airflow. Give them all day sun if you have it, but at least six hours of full sun a day. Their roots won’t tolerate standing water. Look for a site with well-drained soil, or create a raised bed for planting.

Order Nature Hills Root Booster to help your lovely plants access micronutrients their whole life. Beneficial ingredients like mycorrhizal fungus create a symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots. Heavy flowering Roses need a moderate amount of water regularly. Use a flowering plant fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer following the label instructions. Lawn fertilizers should not be used near Roses, as they will reduce the blooming. Apply a three-inch layer of mulch to keep the roots cool, but please don’t let it directly rest against the stems.

Bag up fallen leaves in late autumn and place them up in your lawn waste.
