In order to take care of roses and keep up it's looks, the taking care of roses requires constant attention, but once you figure out how to do it, it's pretty easy to keep the roses in tip top shape. One thing that a rose needs is water, which should be pretty obvious because all plants require water regardless of what they are.

Roses will of course look best as long as you keep them watered, and to do this you should give them an inch every week. The roots are what's important during the watering, as they have roots that go deep underground. Their roots go so deep that they're able to take water from the sub soil while the surface itself remains dry. This is why roses are able to survive in some of the harshest conditions.

If you water the roots of the rose, then it will grow very deep. As the owner you need to do this because if you only give it a light watering then the roots will not grow deep and the plant will not be able to handle any sort of drought, meaning that it won't last very long.

You're going to need to do a bit of fertilizing, because believe it or not most roses are able to go several years without being fed so long as they're in good soil. Plants require nutrients and these are created by the soil. If you use man-made fertilizer, the bugs in the soil could become smothered. Your plants may also become reliant on those fertilizers, which means you'll need to keep buying them for your roses, and that could mean an expense that you really do not need.

A slow release fertilizer should be in order when the plant is waking up in the early spring. Fertilizer can also be applied once the blooms are gone, but after the middle of summer is a bad time to apply any sort of fertilizer.

You can use either inorganic or organic fertilizers, and if you do use organic then the bacteria in the soil will be able to absorb it which will result in a permanently fertile patch of soil. The best combination that you can use is 5-10-5 or 4-8-4.

Pruning is a very important part of caring for your roses. You should usually do this in springtime once the roses wake up after winter. This is to get rid of the dead or diseased wood from the plant, and will also give your plant more space so that air can pass by and around it quickly. This will keep it quite healthy and will encourage additional growth.

In addition to that, you can also prune to give your plant the shape that you want. There is more pruning to be done once the plant has actually bloomed. If you prune your flower properly then it will encourage growth by removing flower buds to create a new plant.

Taking care of your roses requires a lot of time, and you are going to need to give it a lot of your time and knowledge. If you can perfect your roses however, then everyone will recognize your skill and marvel over the beauty of your roses.
The end really does justify the means in proper way to take care of roses.
