What is the best way to care for my roses?

  • Remove spent blossoms to encourage your rose bush to produce more flowers.
  • Use a liquid food, like Miracle-Gro every few weeks or sprinkle granules around the base.
  • Keep mulch around your roses and water 1 inch per week.
  • Stop feeding them a month before first frost.
  • After the first frost, add a few inches of topsoil over the base. If you live where it gets really cold, keep your rose bush snug by wrapping some sackcloth around it.
