3. No Wet Feet
It’s a common misconception that roses are one of the hardest flowers to plant and maintain, but nothing could be further from the truth – and most people realize this the moment they’ve planted their first rose bush and brought it to flowering stage. The trick with roses is simply to get the conditions right and to adjust them as needed, and you can usually see by the plant whether you’re getting all of the necessary elements right.
One of the things that apply to most types of roses out there is the fact that they don’t like what’s called “wet feet” – too much water surrounding the roots can lead to a vast majority of long-term issues for your plants.
Make sure that your plants are getting watered at least twice per week, in well-draining soil that allows for enough water to get through, but not the roots to stay wet.
