SUMMER CARE TIPS FOR ROSES

Summer Care Tips for Roses – Tip #1

Deadheading – It’s important to remove the buds that are done blooming. To deadhead the bloom, use a good pair of hand pruners, and snip the bloom about 1/4 inch above the set of leaves. You will notice that the leaves are either three, five or even sometimes seven or nine leaflets, this is where you want to focus on cutting. Be sure to cut the stems back to where the wood is strong enough to support a new rose.

Watering – Roses can be a little finicky when it comes to watering. Roses like a good, deep soak to promote deep rooting. It’s best to create a watering well around the base of the rose, and give them a good soaking at least once a week. This will depend on the amount of rain you receive as well.
