Site selection is important for Roses, so choose an area in full sun, well-drained soil and good air circulation. Roses perform at their peak with a regular schedule of water around their roots and off of the leaves. Always add Nature Hills Root Booster to your order for use during planting, and as a top dressing for mature plants. You’ll want to mulch the root system but pull it away from directly touching the stems. Roses are hungry and need a good slow-release fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer. Use a formula for flowering plants for the best results. Prune Roses down to six inches in early spring. The blooms occur each year on new growth from the base of the plant.
