Preview of Step-By-Step Guide To Roses:
Roses are beautiful, long-lasting flowers. You can smell their sweet aroma from a mile away and see their vibrant colors before you even reach them!
If you want to grow these flowers, there are some steps that you have to follow. While it may seem complicated at first, it is easier than you think. Just follow the steps in this book and you will be growing roses in no time!
Step 1: Pick a Spot
The first thing that you need to do is decide where you want to plant your roses. You need to make sure that the area gets a lot of sun.
In addition, the soil there needs to be loose and fertile. If not, you will have to get it ready before you can plant your roses.
Step 2: Clear Out the Weeds
Begin by removing any and all weeds from the spot that you want to plant your rose bush in. If you do not get rid of these, they can take over your new rose bush before it even has a chance to grow.
Step 3: Add Some Fertilizer or Manure
If you added quality soil when you first cleared off this patch, you should be able to skip this step. However, if the soil has little to no nutrients in it, you need to add some before you plant your roses.
Add either some manure or some sort of plant fertilizer for best results.
Step 4: Pick Out Your Rose Bush
Now that your garden bed is ready for a rose bush, pick out one that you want to plant. Make sure that it is the type of rose that will grow well in your climate.
If you live in a colder climate, you are going to have to choose a rose bush that will be able to survive the cold winters that you have. If you live in a hotter climate, you need to make sure that the rose bush is able to handle the heat.
Step 5: Dig a Hole
After you have picked out your rose bush and confirmed that it is the right type for your climate, it is ready to be planted. Grab a shovel and start digging a hole in your patch that you prepared earlier.
The hole needs to be twice as wide as the root ball of the rose bush and just as deep.
Step 6: Add Fertilizer and Water
After you have dug your hole, you need to add some fertilizer to the bottom of it. Manure or plant-based are both good options.
Then, add some water to the hole.
