Tips For A Flourishing Rose Garden

Roses need at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily. Choose a sunny spot that gets plenty of direct sunlight.


Good air circulation helps prevent fungal diseases. Avoid planting roses too close to walls or other plants.

Air Circulation

Choose rose varieties that are known to perform well in your climate. Consider disease resistance, bloom times, and size.


Conduct a soil test to understand your soil's nutrient and pH levels. Roses prefer a pH between 6.0 and 6.5.

Soil Test

Make sure the graft union (the swollen part where the stem meets the roots) is just above the soil line in warm climates and below in cold climates.

Planting Depth

Roses require deep, infrequent watering to establish deep roots. Aim for the equivalent of 1 inch of rainfall per week.

Deep Watering

Prune roses early in the spring to remove dead or diseased wood and to shape the plant. Most roses benefit from being cut back by about one-third of their height.

Annual Pruning

Keep the area around roses clean and free of debris to reduce disease and pest problems.
