Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb for askmrgreenthumb.com. Taking care of rose bushes. Well, there's a couple things you need to know. One, would be that you need to improve the soil. I usually, something like this Black Kow cow manure, and you also need to make sure that you fertilize them with a good fertilizer. I usually get a rose fertilizer because it has more of the, not just NP and K, but it has some of the trace elements as well. Remember with roses, they need about six hours of good sun a day. That's really paramount. If they don't get enough sunlight, they're probably not going to flower like you'd like. Of course, also you need to make sure that you trim back any of the dead branches, any crossing branches, and also make sure that you give them a good watering on a regular basis. This means, probably, almost every day during the hot growing season, and of course, you can reduce that as the season starts to get a bit cooler. Do make sure that you pick off the infected leaves, and probably be prepared to spray with a good insecticide and fungicide as needed for black spot and powdery mildew.
