Caring for your roses throughout the growing season will reward you with months of beautiful blooms from the beginning of warm weather until long after the first frost.
Watering : Roses that receive the right amount of water, grow better and the blooms are larger, the colors are brighter and they last longer. Roses should receive 1 inch of water per week. You can use a rain gauge as a guide. Water deeply once a week instead of watering lightly more often. If you have sandy soil or the weather is very hot, or windy, then you should water more often.
Fertilizing : Feed roses at least three times a year, Immediately after pruning, after the first bloom cycle, and two months before the first fall frost. To grow larger flowers, fertilize roses once a month during the growing season.
Use a prepared rose food or a balanced fertilizer such as 5-10-5.
Mulching : Roses grow better if the are mulched. In the summer mulch will help to keep the soil cool, helps to retain moisture and to control weeds.You can use organic mulches such as; wood chips, shredded leaves, or pine needles. These will help to enrich the soil.

You can apply a pre~emergence herbicide to rose and flower beds in the spring to prevent annual weeds from germinating.
Deadhead: It's a good idea to remove dead lowers, this encourages new growth for faster re~blooming.
