On Today’s article regarding home improvement we are doing a feature on gardening and how very simple landscaping modifications can improve the value of your home as well over all appearance. Roses add a splash of color to any backyard, but they must be planted and tended to with care. In choosing the type of rose to plant, you must primarily consider what will grow well in your region based on climate and soil quality. Next, you can think about rose characteristics such as shape, size, and color that you find appealing. Once you’ve chosen a good variety of rose, pick an area of your backyard that gets about six hours of sunlight every day, and that has loose soil with plenty of drainage. This means that the ground won’t become over-saturated and also isn’t too dry. The area also shouldn’t be too crowded with the roots of other plants or shrubs.
Once you’ve picked an appropriate variety you need to choose a sunlit location that will provide heat to the plant for a large amount of the day! Plants do not like shade! Next you need to appropriately calculate how much water the plant will receive. Too much water is not a good thing, too little is choking the plant. Next you need to dig an approximately 18 inch by 18 inch hole, which should be large enough for most plants. If you’re planting multiple bushes, dig the holes at least 18 inches apart to give the plants’ roots enough room to grow. Mix the dirt with fertilizer, place the plant in the hole, and back-fill the hole around the plant. The union of the rose buds should sit about two inches below the surface of the dirt to keep the rose plant from being affected by frost. Continue to regularly water, fertilize, and prune the plants, and enjoy the natural beauty of your roses!
