Caring for Rosa St. Patrick

St. Patrick will Grow well in a fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Good air circulation.

As the saying goes "some like it hot " ..and St Patrick certainly does...It is a Slow opening rose that takes the heat. Large pointed buds open to big yellow blooms with a tinge of green.

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.

Keep your rose garden weed free. Weeds will compete with rose plants for water and food. They are also breeding grounds for insects and disease, plus they are unattractive. Remove weeds as soon as possible when you see them appear.

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.

      Well - I guess I am partial to the name "St. Patrick" for obvious lineage reasons. This article brought me back to my Nana who always grew such lovely rose gardens. I still care for her rose bushes. It is a wonderful testament to her life and I feel great every time I see them flourishing.

      I a now curious exactly what kind hers are. I am sure, if she were still here today she would have chosen the St. Patrick - being she was 100% Irish! LOL

      Your article made me smile and I thank you.
