2. Enough Sun
Even the most novice of gardeners know that one of the most important needs for their plants is sunlight – but one of the most common novice gardener mistakes is not knowing just how much sun a specific type of plant is meant to get.
When in the case of roses, they generally need at least six hours of full sun every day, and should be planted in a spot where they are getting access to at least this – but not too much more than this, and not direct sunlight in harsher types of climates.
Many people plant their rose bushes where they’re guaranteed at least a mix of a few hours of shade together with the sunlight for the best results. If you notice that your roses are getting more sun than they should (usually noticed by the appearance of “wilted” flowers), apply temporary shade netting which can be moved as needed.
