A Look At Month-to-Month Maintenance

Dead head – as rose blooms die, cut back to the first pair of leaves – this will encourage more buds to form to give you more blooms. Disbud if necessary – if a larger H.T. type rose is producing multiple buds on a stem, you can pinch off the side buds to get a bigger bloom.

How Often To Water Your Roses

During hot weather, apply 20 litres of water per bush 3 times a week. Be aware if using a sprinkler system that there may not be enough water getting right down to the roots, as often the sprinkler systems do not apply sufficient water each time they are switched on. If we’ve had good, soaking rain you can miss the occasional watering, but do make sure the rain has been sufficient, not just a passing storm.

During cooler times, use the same amount of water, but apply twice a week. In Winter, apply the same quantity of water once a week

What Food Do Your Roses Need

Roses are “greedy people”! Feed with your fertilizer of choice from January to April (in May and June only in warm sub-tropical areas) then from June or July (after pruning) through to the end of the year ( that is, nearly every month!!)

Always keep a mulch of good compost, pine bark, peanut shells etc. to conserve water and to keep the roots cool in summer and warm in winter.
