Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment I want to talk all about growing yellow roses. Now roses come in many different colors but they're all really enjoyable to grow, and you can put them in containers or you can have them right in the soil. But roses do need full sun, they need air, I notice they don't like an area where there's no air, if they're too contained or too protected, they don't actually like that. And they want lots of water when they're growing. Now this rose was huge and I just chopped it back because all the blooms were faded. So when you're growing roses and you've got that first set of Summer blooms and they start looking tacky. roses love to be chopped back. And the rule of thumb, is just chop them back one-third of the plant at the time. And then that way it'll fill in and you'll get a second set of roses by the Fall. Now there's many different varieties of yellow roses and some are a little heartier than others, some get black spots more than others. So my rule of thumb is, if your rose looks healthy, leave it be, if it looks tacky, trim it down, a lot of times, it'll fill in really well. And you want to raise the bed, if it is getting too moist and they're really yellow. A lot of times you'll see there's not enough water, too much water or it doesn't have good enough drainage. So roses love to be in raised beds, so just by raising it up a little bit, it usually makes all the difference. And again, if you have a yellow rose, it doesn't look good, it's always got black spots. You can always try a different variety, sometimes just a different variety makes all the difference.
