Rose Gardens With Healthy Roses

Rose Gardens With Healthy Roses

Preparing soil in rose gardens is the first step in producing healthy roses all summer. It’s not difficult, but each element is important. A rich loam base is the best foundation, and on top of this you should add both a thick layer of organic material and about three pounds of super-phosphate for each 100 square feet.

If you then till all of that into the soil, to the depth of about a foot, your flower gardening will have the best chance of success, as your roses will be starting out with plenty of nutrients.

Not all types of roses arrive in a garden the same way, nor are they planted in rose gardens by exactly the same means. Container plants, for example, are relatively easy to plant, just being tipped from the container and put into the ground.

Bare root plants, on the other hand, those with just roots and a few naked canes, need quick planting before foliage starts growing. They also need protecting for about three weeks with an eight inch cone of soil built around them. And boxed roses, without the cardboard, should be planted similarly.

The time for planting rose gardens varies depending on the plant, but you definitely have to wait until all danger of frost has passed. When it comes to bare root plants, you plant in the early spring, though other kinds of roses can be planted somewhat later.

The main thing is to take the steps necessary to create the healthy garden, from preparing the soil and planting in a sunny spot, to feeding and rose pruning afterward. Take this extra care with your roses, and they should thrive all summer long.
