Roses don’t require a ton of water, so make sure you don’t overwater them. If they’re newly planted, give them a good drink of water every couple of days. Do Not Drown Them! Just give them a drink right around the root ball.
When you water, don’t spray over the top of them with the water hose, and no sprinklers! That will give them black spot fungus, which will ruin the flowers.
Roses deadhead very easily. Just find a bloom that’s given up, usually sacrifice a leaf and snip it off. That’s it! In the fall, leave the old blooms on because they do make seeds so they may spread for you.
Don’t prune them until the first week of May, that way you can give them a shape and all the freeze damage shows.
If you have any more questions on caring for your roses, don’t hesitate to give us a call or come by the greenhouse. We will be more than happy to send you home with beautiful roses, or help you find what you need to feed, water, and care for them. You can watch a video of Lynn sharing her Rose Care Tips below. Happy gardening!
