Roses

Roses are considered the world’s best-known and most popular ornamental plant. Their combination of elegance, fragrance, beauty, and charm creates an irresistible combination. Roses require 6-10 hours of sun each day, along with fertile, well-drained soil and a site protected from winter winds. Dig a deep, wide hole, replace with good topsoil and organic matter. Roses look best when massed, but allow ample room for each plant. Mulch in summer. Fertilize with rose food in spring and in July. Apply fungicide when needed. In our area, some types of roses require winter protection. Apply a heavy mulch of fir boughs or straw at the base, and erect a burlap screen for those planted in exposed sites. Lay climber-canes down before covering. Culture sheets are available.
