Roses are beautiful flowers that you can plant during or just following spring. All you need to do in water it preferably at the soil line with a hose, and supply some rose fertilizer and manure. Rose plants are sometimes susceptible to fungal and mildew infections, if kept too wet.

“Pruning is another aspect to consider when caring for rose bushes. This often takes place once leaf buds appear in spring. Make cuts about 1/4 inch above the bud eyes and prune out any twiggy or unhealthy branches.”
