Pink Roses






The proper care-of-roses will determine what your rose garden looks like.

As an example, the soil needs particular nutrients for roses to thrive.




Proper care in wintertime may determine whether your rose bushes will live through the winter (especially in cold weather). If you live in Zone 5 or colder, you may want to do as many rose gardners do which is to mulch them by burying your rose bushes with leaves, straw, or hay which will act as insulation during the cold winter months.



Pruning your roses is very important. Actually by cutting fresh roses to display in your home, you will effectively prune them for the most part. See section on pruning roses for more details.

Watching for insects and other pesky pests, like gophers that love rose roots is important too.

Aphids are another insect pest for roses, and you may want to plant some other flowers near your rose garden,that encourage friendly insects which eat aphids, such as lady bugs.

Whatever you do, your care of roses is very important to continual outdoor beauty all summer long.
