basics of growing roses? Great! Let’s get started with how to start growing heart’s favorite! Here are some of the basic lessons to note when thinking about growing beautiful roses in your garden. Considering the Garden Space and Design Landscape design planning is by far the most critical step to consider before choosing the varieties of roses to plant. An analogy to this would be planning the structure and layout of your house first before putting in some of essentials that will make it a home. This is important in the sense that landscaping details will help you realize whether the space is appropriate for roses or not. So start planning your garden design. Most of the expert gardeners set up their roses in a number of ways. For instance, some consider putting up a ring “fence” of white shrub roses, while others prefer a climbing rose, masked in red blooms or their favorite color and grown at the back of a catchy flower border. There are also others who set up roses spilling over a stone retaining wall or an enchanting arbor, with the ground cloaked with well-shaped corals or other favorite colors and flowers. For smaller spaces, mini versions are available to grace your patio or deck. Keep in mind that roses need at least 4- 6 hours of sun…(preferably from the morning…and especially in warmer, sun-intense areas..). Design so that you have easy access to water for your gorgeous garden companions, and assure them of good drainage. There are other ideas that you can incorporate with your garden design

that will make your rose garden as attractive and bloom-bountiful as it should be. No matter what strategy you may incorporate, roses fit in well with most any landscape. Yes, when it comes to landscaping, there is always room for roses! And the value of your home can well be enhanced with the beauty and enchantment they provide!

Knowing Your Climate The climate is another important factor to consider when thinking about planting and growing roses. It plays an important role in the growth of the plants - and all gardeners, amateur and expert alike, should consider it before selecting or planting any specimens. For instance, it is deemed best to plant roses when temperatures are cool and the plants are dormant. This is no doubt ideal if you have a climate with a winter temperature that stays above ten degrees Fahrenheit. On the other hand, if you live in an area where temperatures tend to hit zero, roses grow well when planted no later than the first day of October. In this kind of climate, experts also often recommend planting roses early in spring, right after the chance of frost has passed. This time can be perfect for planting your roses, simply for the reason that during this period, the ground is likely warmed and thawed. If you want to make sure that you are planting roses in the right climate conditions, check the package information for any hint, or ask the experts growers you know about the right time for your roses to be planted in your area.

Befriend Your Soil In terms of soil, expert gardeners often suggest planting roses in areas where annuals, perennials and grasses grew. These plants indicate that nutrients needed for the roses to grow and bloom exist in the soil. However, if you want to obtain better results, it would be best if you will consider adding some sort of nutritional amendments to your soil. According to some gardeners, fertilizers will work best if worked into the soil beneath the roots before planting the roses. However, others recommend that no additional fertilizer be used with newly planted roses for the first year. If you properly amend the condition of your soil before planting, no further fertilizer will likely be needed at planting time. You can add some well-cured compost or organic matter to further make the soil more ideal for the roses to grow. Sheep’s manure, peat moss and compost are said to be potent for that purpose. Well-prepared soil with proper drainage and nutrients are vital to success with your wonderful Rose companions. Take the time to do it correctly! Good soil will give your Roses the basic foundation they need for a healthy, long lasting life, provide for more beautiful blooms, and help keep disease and pests at bay! It is their support mechanism and food supply conduit rolled into one…and vitally important to their health! To amend the garden soil for your wonderful roses, spread fertilizers on the ground. A rate of about four pounds per one hundred feet is said to be ideal . If you are clueless as to what kinds of fertilizers to use for your roses, don’t hesitate to ask your garden center or local nursery. There are garden centers that distribute fertilizers for households to use throughout the year. Catalogues are also helpful resources. It is worth noting that roses tend to live and flourish longer in soil rich in nitrogen,

potash and sodium.

Organic amendments are preferred by many

rosarians, rather than chemical fertilizers. A mix of these can often show wonderful results, while offering some convenience as well. If you find your planting area to be rocky, then don’t panic. The truth is that many roses live well in areas that are rocky. This is based on the fact that unlike the other plants, the roots of roses don’t like to be wet. Rocks provide them great drainage.

Choosing Varieties to Grow As you may know, roses come in a number of types. Each type has its own survival requirements that must be met for them to survive and flourish. So when planning to grow roses, it is important to determine exactly what type to roses you want to propagate and what type will look best in your garden. It is also important to make sure that the type you are considering fits well in your location, keeping climate in mind as well. To give you an idea of the most common types of roses, some of the more popular are listed below. Please read on.

Hybrid Tea Roses You have probably seen some of the hybrid tea roses in your neighbor’s backyard. Or someone in the past has given you a bouquet of hybrid tea roses. This class or variety of Roses comes in a number of shades. Many of

them are fragrant, and they come in large sizes, making them perfect for bouquets and centerpieces. They have an exquisite shape beloved around the world. However, in terms of their survival requirements, ask the person who introduced you to the flowers in the garden center. You might be told that hybrid tea roses tend to grow best in a climate without frigid winter temperatures, unless the roots and base of the bush are warmly cloaked with straw and/or mulch during the cold season. Also, there’s a great possibility that the staff in the flower garden will advise you to deadhead the blooms, which will in turn allow them to grow and bloom so beautifully. These roses can be a bit more “sensitive” than other types of roses, and not usually recommended for beginners. But so many new and improved varieties of roses are produced every year, that many find perfect varieties in this class as well to nurture as their favorite garden companions the world over!

Miniature Roses Just like the rest of the rose types, miniature roses come in a variety of colors, making them capable of complimenting every garden theme. However, the miniature roses grow only to a height of about six or seven inches. Blooms of about an inch grow plentifully, making this type truly attractive to behold. You can plant this variety in rock gardens, borders, or as wall edgings, as they tend to thrive best in these places. Again, these can be ideal for small spaces, decks and patios.

Grandifloras

Grandifloras have long been considered the perfect variety to grow for those who are just starting a rose-growing venture. One of the main reasons for this preference is that grandifloras are so easy and quick to grow. They feature heavy foliage and blooms that are profuse, and another great thing about them is that they have the tendency to survive in temperatures which drop to ten degrees Fahrenheit. And, with a variety of colors available for this type, it’s no wonder that grandifloras will fit every garden theme. The grandifloras can even be brought inside your home where they can be used as a beautiful vase display. If you have grandifloras in your garden blooming beautifully, you may want to try bringing the blooms indoors to enjoy how perfectly they enhance the ambience of your home.

Creeping Roses As the name suggests, the creeping roses grow and creep along fallen logs, large rocks, or along stumps. They tend to grow well in colder climates, since creeping roses are one of the most common hearty types of rose. However, unlike the other varieties, the creeping roses are not as attractive, nor do they show great blooms. They work well when incorporated into your landscape. You can place them near a brick wall with contrasting shade in the background. With their creeping nature, this variety is often deemed ideal for terraces, walls of garden sheds, or on banks as wonderful ground cover.

Floribundas

Floribundas are another well-known type of rose that is easy to grow. This variety is widely held to be easier to care for, compared to the hybrid teas. They also tend to produce large blooms, especially from June until the first sign of frost. There are, however, some instances when floribundas bloom so well -- they last even until the severe frost hits. With their large blooms, most gardeners consider the floribundas perfect for mass plantings, as well as for landscaping. They are ideal for these settings, as they are not only just beautiful, but also fragrant. Aside from that, they survive in temperatures as low as twenty degrees Fahrenheit. So, if you find the temperature in your area dipping below twenty degrees, it would be best to cover the base and the area around your rose buds with a blanket of straw or mulch. This will protect its roots and canes, allowing them to grow again in the spring, despite the climate.

Hybrid Perpetuals If you are wondering about the hardiest types of rose, the hybrid perpetual is a winner. The perpetuals are so hearty in nature that they usually thrive well even in areas with harsh winters. But although they can thrive the following growing season after weathering such conditions, it is still best to protect its roots and canes in winter months when the wind and rain can be heavy. Flower collectors from different areas in the world have long known and enjoyed this variety.

Polyantha Roses Polyantha roses are yet another hearty type of rose that thrives well in temperate climate, provided that the roots are well-protected. This variety grows to a height of about eighteen inches, but they bloom in large clusters, giving you a showy display. The polyanthas are often favorites in mass plantings or borders.

This has been a short summary of what are held to be some of the most the popular varieties of roses. After you select which of the varieties you really intend to grow, planting the roses comes next!

How to Plant Your Roses Planting roses is one of the most critical part of growing roses -undertake it with proper care. Be sure you have amended your soil properly with compost and nutrients and texturizers as needed! Too heavy or too light soil are both unhappy choices for your glorious roses! So, how to start planting? Here are some simple steps for you to follow:

1. Look for an area with good drainage, as the roots of roses cannot

typically stand being sodden. Roses, like all of us, dislike "wet feet". 2. Soak the rose roots in a bucket of water while preparing their “home”. 3. Dig a hole measuring about two feet wide and two feet deep. 4. Add some compost to the soil. Composted manure and peat moss will do wonderfully. 5. If necessary, add some forms of fertilizer, like bone meal. Mix it up with the soil and fill the hole with water. Additional chemical fertilizers the first year, however, are not recommended at planting time by some rosarians--if you have properly prepared the soil in advance. 6. Once the hole has drained away, plant the grafted rose. Keep the bud union at the surface. It is best to make a mound below at the proper height to support and spread the roots around. 7. If you are living in a country with very cold winters, position the bush union down about two inches below the surface of the soil. 8. Hill up the soil around the base of the rose bush. This is necessary to prevent any sign of drying out, which will possibly happen if the weather gets cold, windy, or very hot. You can remove this covering as soon as roots find their own way into the soil. (but leave them intact for the winter if planting in the dormant season) 1. To maintain the growth, water the rose regularly. Give your newly planted roses some TLC. Water them regularly, as roses need

about as much water as we do!

Other Helpful Tips There are a lot more steps you can take to make your roses grow as lively and bloom-bountiful as possible. and in the right time. According to experts, pruning in winter is not a good idea. The right time to prune rose bushes is in spring when new growth appears. Just prune off old flowers when they fade, including those dead branches. During the growing season, it is wise to fertilize the rose bushes twice. It‘s important to feed your roses at the“right time”, which would be in the spring, soon after the first growth appears for the first fertilizer and in mid-season for the second fertilizer. And, never fertilize the roses in the fall, especially if you are living in an area where four-season climate is available. Roses start to slow down in anticipation of their winter snooze...and should not be "fed"! “Overindulgence” is not good for roses either! Speaking of fall, it is also best recommended for every rose grower to always protect the roots of the rosebushes in the fall, perhaps with one foot of straw or 6 inches or so of compost placed on the base of the bushes. Provide this warm “blanket” after the first solid frost. One of the necessary tasks to keep your roses healthy and looking great is to prune them in the right way
