Caring for your roses is important for their health. It will keep your blooms beautiful and help prevent disease that could harm your plants.
How to Care for your Roses this Summer
STEP 1: PRUNE
After the first bloom, lightly prune your plant by clipping just about the third set of leaves. Then, clean up your cuttings to avoid disease growth that could harm your plant!
STEP 2: FEED
Dig a shallow trench all the way around your rose plant. Feed your plant and apply a slow release fertilizer like Calloway’s Professional Rose Food.
STEP 3: WATER
After feeding your plant, water in all of the nutrients. Be careful not to wash away the fertilizer but do allow the water to slowly seep deep into the plant’s roots.
STEP 4: MULCH
Finally, in just a few weeks, your roses will look bold and beautiful with vibrant blooms!
