I love roses. I actually breed a few because they are just so lovely to look at. Sometimes, I give it to people special to me on certain occasions. One thing I can tell you about roses is that they are not easy to maintain. Utmost care has to be applied in order for them to bloom beautifully and be that way until their lifespan.
I recently came across a portal that focuses on gardening and features well known Gardenieres who know a thing or two about maintaining your plants’ health.
I like the section on Gina Iliopoulos, the Midwest Gardeniere who grows roses in her front yard and walks through some tips on how to manage, prune, and train them so that they will grow on her newly installe trellis.
I agree with her assessment that roses are a must for any garden, and that they require maintenance for both safety and their own successful growth.
Healthy roses need the right materials in order for them to bloom beautifully. The Miracle-Gro® Garden Soil for Trees andShrubs makes it an ideal partner for roses. Plus the Miracle-Gro® Continuous Release Plant Food can feed up to 3 months and can definitely help me save up on costs.
