HOW TO CARE FOR ROSES:

Arizona’s heat can play havoc with all plants; and roses are no exception. Our sunny climate is good for roses and with proper care, roses will flourish in the desert. Be sure to purchase your roses from a good local company. This should assure they are accustomed to our extreme heat. Feeding and watering the correct way is essential to the health of any rose bush.
  • Watering: Roses should be watered deeply and slowly to assure water reaches the roots. Using a long rod will make sure water has reached a depth of 18 to 24 inches. During hot weather, water every day and if the top two inches of soil are dry, it is time to water.
  • Feeding: During growing season, you should fertilize every 6 weeks. Do not fertilize during the summer. Begin fertilizing again during September-October with a slow release fertilizer. Watering roses after fertilizing is extremely important to the health of your plant.
  • Mulch: Spreading mulch on the base of your rose bush will help keep the soil moist. Spread it approximately 3-4 inches and replenish as needed.
  • Pruning: pruning roses in late January and early February is an ideal time. Use diagonal cuts when pruning and remove all the broken, diseased and weak limbs.
  • Insects and diseases are a nightmare for rose bushes; so check for them often. There are many bug control and disease prevention products available to help keep your roses beautiful.
