- Are receiving 6-8 hours of full sun, daily
- Have drip irrigation set up to avoid diseases caused by too much water
- Prune often by Thinning (Removing branches to reduce density) or Reducing (shortening the plant height) or Heading (Forces new buds to grow)
- Know the type of rose you are pruning - pruning style depends on what species you have
We recommend adding rose fertilizer to your rose bushes in March to keep them strong year-round.
