When planting, make sure the crown of the rose its “neck” is at ground level. Water your rose deeply once a week. Prune your roses in the spring, removing dead or damaged branches.

Remember to watch out for pests and diseases. Common rose enemies include aphids and black spot. If you notice any signs of trouble, address it quickly.

Lastly, enjoy the fruits of your labor. Growing roses takes patience and care, but it’s worth it when you see your beautiful blooms.
