The perfect rose garden

If rose gardens were ranked by popularity they would far and away be the highest ranked in the world. The gardens run the entire gamut, from a small garden to the world famous Marie Antoinette’s of pre French revolution fame. Popularity starts from the top with their beautiful blossoms and wonderful scents and continues down to their strong thorny branches. There are no flowers that have been so often used as a representation of love and affection after all. Here are a few rose gardening tips that are quite easy to follow, if your want to have a beautiful yard of roses.

Cross over canes need to be pruned out and eliminated. As easily as the sharp thorns can snag your hands, they can also damage the rose’s delicate outer pores and skin. The key is to always prune a stem above the bud facing away from the interior of the plant. The rose will react by growing a brand new shoot.

Mulch is important since it retains water and therefore will help keep your roses from being too dry. With the additional moisture from the mulch, the roses do not need to be watered as often summer months.

To get your roses to bloom, use meals that are formulated specifically formulated for roses. If natural is your preference, some rotted compost with a banana peel and a small scoop of Epsom salts will do the trick. Home grown remedies have always been the favorites of roses.

Breathing is essential to roses. They need space and it is important not to allow other vegetation to impose on them. Maintain around the base of the rose plant free of weeds by using placing rotted compost or chip mulch in a 2 to 4 inch layer. Always remember that weed restrictors should not be placed where they will be in an imposition to the stem of the plant.

As with all living things, roses need to eat repetitively. Before replanting them, make sure they are fed with a nice dollop of compost placed in the planting gap.

Make sure pruned canes and spotty leaves have been removed from the ground. Heavy rains can cause fungus that is on them to re-infect the roses.

Brown or lifeless canes need to be removed immediately since they can harbor insect pests. The useless wood needs to be trimmed. Make sure you do not crush the canes as you take them away, there needs to be clear lower.
