How to Grow The Perfect Rose

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 12 April , 2017

Few things can make a yard or garden really pop like a rose. Because you can plant potted roses at practically any time here in California, it’s always a good time to see how roses can transform your yard.

In this issue, we’ll share planting and care tips so that you can grow the perfect rose.

Best Time to Plant Potted Roses

As we said, even though you can plant potted roses throughout the year here, the best selections are usually from December – May.

Where To Plant Your Roses

There’s no such thing as “too much sun” when it comes to planting roses. In fact, full exposure to the sun is best. If you plant them in an area with too much shade, you run the risk of limiting the plant’s growth and making it vulnerable to disease.

The key is to make sure the hole you dig for your roses is deep enough so that the grafting point is sitting at ground level.

Once you have the rose plant positioned in the hold, surround it with compost. You can add more soil after watering the plant slowly.

How to Water Your Roses

If your roses are going to stay in pots for a little while, check on them throughout the week. If there’s dry soil more than a half-inch deep, go ahead and water your plants.

Once they’re in the ground, you should water the roses at least once per week.

How to Fertilize Your Roses

When you notice the first signs of growth, you should use an all-purpose flower food to feed it. You can also add Epsom Salts, which are really just magnesium and are an ideal way to prevent any deficiency in magnesium with your plant.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
