How to Grow and Care for Julia Child Rose

Julia Child Rose (Rosa ‘Julia Child’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 5-10 outdoors

Planting

Select a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).

Plant your rose in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds.

If you’re planting in a container, select a pot that’s about twice the size of your plant’s shipped container and use organic soil. Place your rose, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.

Watering

Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it’s time to water your rose.

If your rose is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.

Fertilizing

Feed with a liquid rose fertilizer, once in the spring and once in the summer. Follow the instructions on the package.

Pruning

Other than shaping, no pruning is required.
