Tips for Care:

Roses require full sun with at least six hours of sunlight to produce those sumptuous blooms along with good air circulation. Provide well-drained soil, as their roots don’t tolerate standing water. Add supplemental water on a regular, even basis, especially for container-grown plants. Encourage the blooms with high-quality Rose fertilizer as per the label instructions. Gain life-long value with symbiotic Nature Hills Root Booster formula in the planting hole. Provide 3-4 inches of arborist mulch over the top of the root system to keep weeds at bay, but keep the mulch pulled back away from the stems.
