How can you properly grow roses?

Roses come in over 150 varieties, but their maintenance requirements are similar. The most common rose categories include modern garden roses, climbing roses, Floribunda roses, Grandiflora roses, and groundcover roses.

You’ll want to consider several factors to ensure their health and longevity. For starters, since roses love the sun, you should keep them in areas that have access to direct sunlight. Roses need six to eight hours of direct sunlight every day and will bloom better if kept in bright areas.

Roses grow healthy when placed in well-draining soil, like loam. Using soil with too much clay as the medium for your roses will cause waterlogging. Sandy soil can prevent the roots from getting moisture from water.

Focus on watering your roses’ root zone instead of sprinkling them with water on the leaves. The latter will only encourage the growth of fungus and cause your roses to become weak. Pruning your roses, on the other hand, is best scheduled during spring.
