Tips for Care:

Rose bushes do best in full sun with at least six hours of direct sunlight a day. Roses need well-drained soil that sheds water quickly after a rainfall. This is important because Rose roots don’t tolerate standing water. Add Nature Hills Root Booster to your planting hole for life-long support. Water with a consistent schedule for the best flowering. The symbiotic ingredients never “wear out” when it is used from day one! Keep container-grown Roses hydrated!

Apply a three-inch layer of mulch over the roots to keep them nice and cool. Then, pull it back away from directly touching the canes. Feed Roses specialty Rose fertilizer. Check the application rates and timing on the label.

In the fall, please bag and remove all leaf litter. Overwinter in cold zones with a mound of mulch applied in late November. Wait until early spring to prune each of the Rose canes down to 6 – 8 inches. Cut at a 45-degree angle just above a nice, fat bud and remove the winter mulch from the crown.
