Rose Gardening Secrets Revealed!

Hello, welcome to the rose gardening newsletter.

Issue #0019

Rose Gardening and Caring for Roses teaches the gardener Patience.....

I've been delaying this newsletter, hoping to give you a tour of my rose garden, but alas.....Mother Nature has been playing nasty tricks on us!

The weather got really hot, then really cold, so the roses are way behind schedule.

I know many of you already have lots of beautiful blooms, but here in my zone 5 garden, all I have are lots of buds, and a few blooms on these Theresa Bugnet rose bushes.

Table of Contents

* Rose Bush Care

* Cutting Back Your Roses, and Keeping Notes

Lots more buds here! Because I had a lot of winter kill to the canes, most all of the roses had to be trimmed way back.

This is usually good for the roses to get a hard trim every now and then

Caring for roses means doing what is best for the bush, so in my case, I had to cut them way back, but I couldn't fertilize them till later than usual. The roses can't take up the fertilizer if they don't have any leaves on the plant, so since they were delayed in leafing out, the fertilizer had to wait.

Once the bushes had at least a few leaves, I fertilized them all.

Balancing the Garden

Take notes in your garden (and pictures) as the roses come into bud and bloom.

Note the weather too.

By taking notes, and keeping a (garden journal)of sorts, it will help you to not only be a better gardener, but it will aid you in having a better garden.

Maybe that red rose you planted next to the orange rose doesn't look quite as good as you thought it would. Maybe the colors clash instead of complimenting each other. You might look around (while the other roses are in bloom) and find a better spot for it.

Early (Next)Spring is the best time to move it.

You might also take a closer look at the perennial flowers to see where changes might be made. Companion-Planting

might be helpful to you.

Inspect the Rose Bushes

Daily inspections of the rose bushes(if possible), can help you to avoid problems.

Just today, as I strolled through the garden with my camera, I spotted several of these caterpillars happily munching on leaves;

They were all removed before more damage could be done...

Featured Rose- Climbing Iceberg

A beautiful white climber that is very vigorous. I've planted two of them this Spring, so I'll see how they do! (I've had them on my wish list for a while!)

Please send in your best pictures of your roses, so I can add them to any page without one. It will also be added to the page along with your comments on how the rose performs for you.

Even if the specific rose page already has a picture, any page can have more picture with comments... so still send your picture. Thanks so much for sharing your roses with us! Send in those photos!
