What roses need: The four essentials
Give roses a position in full sun and ensure the plants have good airflow. Avoid growing them near big shrubs and trees that will cause them to compete for light and nutrients.
During the warm months, regular water is key. Avoid overhead watering to reduce the risk of disease such as powdery mildew and black spot.
They’re hungry plants, so feed them well. Use a slow- release fertiliser for roses and supplement with liquid feeding.
Prune roses in winter, and deadhead for more blooms during the growing season.
