Roses are admired by people of almost every age group. They are a sign of love, sign of peace and sign of harmony. However, there is a misconception among some people that maintenance of a rose garden is a difficult task. Rose gardens are very easy to handle and maintain, however, in order to properly maintain your rose garden; you need to follow some practical guidelines which I will be elaborating in this piece of writing.
1 Watering is the most important part of the proper growth of the roses. You must water your rose garden on frequent basis. Water the roots of the roses while avoid watering the leaves. Make sure that your Rose garden should remain moist in the morning and not in the evening.
2 Regularly cultivate the soil of your rose garden. Diffusion of a mulch of pine needles, wood chips or other environmental material will slow down weed development. Roses are sensitive to herbicides so one should avoid using them at every cost.
3 Leaves of the roses turn white if they get infected by black spot due to their growth in humid and rainy conditions. General fungus sickness contains rust, which is typified by lifted orange marks on the bases of leaves, and rose cancer, which creates brown colored patches on the branches. A fungicide should be the cure for these diseases. However, before applying any fungicide, take some advice from a professional gardener or the concerned personnel. Use alcohol to clean pruners and avoid the spread of diseases.
4 Pruning is very important for the shape and look of your rose garden. After cutting down the dead stems, prune the plant by one half until the stems turn white instead of brown color. Create slanted cuts over outer facing buds by five leaflets to encourage development of the roses. In summer season, make sure you cut off the dead roses from your rose garden, not cutting them off in time might cause harm to other roses as well.
5 In winter, rose garden requires less maintenance as compared to the summer season. Don’t fertilize roses during the fall season, as encouraging new growth makes them weaker to face cold.
Above mentioned were some simple rose garden maintenance tips which are really easy to understand and apply. Follow the above mentioned tips as described if you want to make sure that your rose garden remains fresh and healthy for a long period of time.
