If you want to have successful rose gardening activity, the best way to get you started is to be prepared. Here are quick tips to guide you every step of the way.
a. Make sure that you provide healthy food to your roses. Just as much as you need food, your roses need them as well. As a matter of fact, it is necessary in rose gardening to provide the roses as much nutrients as they can from the soil so that they will grow healthy and yield beautiful blooms. The only way that you can ensure that your roses obtain adequate amount of nutrition is to properly prepare the soil.
b. Dig up the ground to make sure that no hard soil is left in the process. This is a very important step in rose gardening. It allows you to mix the fertilizer well with the soil and make sure that the nutrients settle into it. This will further ensure that wherever the root grows your plant will definitely get the nutrient it needs. The layer of nutrients for your roses should reach around 2-3 feet down since the roots would go deeper as they grow.
c. Create a hole with one foot depth and keep the soil you got from the digging for covering later on. Add your fertilizer after creating the hole and it could be the form of manure, compost or peat moss. You can consult an expert on rose gardening in your locality for any tips or advice on which fertilizers are ideal and available in your area.
d. Consider the factors affecting the fertilizers such as climate. You may want fertilizers that are most potent in your area.
e. Add around 3 inches of fertilizer into the hole that you have dug up and begin digging an additional 1 foot to start mixing the fertilizer into the soil. This is where you will be planting your roses therefore it is but appropriate that you ensure the fertilizer is within reach and mixed thoroughly. Once the mixture is prepared, you can add the soil that you have kept from digging before. Add another 3 inches of fertilizer and repeat the process of mixing once again as part and parcel of rose gardening.
