The first roses to bloom in a new garden will be called the "first fruits". Roses are commonly grouped into four main types. These can be planted together, interspersed or grown as a formal rose garden.

Roses bloom best in full sun, so it is important to select a location that gets at least six hours of sun a day. If your garden isn't located in full sun, choose one of the four main types of rose.

Show-your-best roses bloom well on a trellis. The "showy" and "double-blooms" rose varieties are ideal for this method of growing.

Rose garden basics

To get started, plant roses between the months of March and June, depending on the climate of your area. Roses need at least six hours of sun per day and can also be raised in containers.

Once they've grown well, pick off weeds, apply a balanced fertilizer, water regularly and use drip irrigation in the hottest, dry part of the summer.

Formal rose garden

A formal rose garden, which can be created in almost any type of garden, is most commonly created in a square shape to maximize the area. To create the formality, add a gravel path, edging material and perhaps use some rose planters.

If you are interested in a formal rose garden, do some research on rose gardening.

Select a suitable planting location. You will need a space at least 6 feet wide and 10 feet long, depending on the type of roses you choose.

Purchase a container. The size of the container should be four times the size of the root ball of the rose in the container.

Place the container in the garden and fill it with potting mix. Water it thoroughly. If the soil is dry, it could mean that you're planting rose roots into a dry, rocky soil. Use an irrigation wand and water it well.

Plant your rose in the container. You'll also want to use a root mat. Place the rose's root ball in the center of the container, making sure to leave the stem sticking out.

Fertilize with a good-quality rose fertilizer once a month.

Repot the rose every three to five years, depending on the kind of rose you're planting and the space it's in. This will help the rose continue to thrive and be healthy.

Keep the soil moist. Roses are drought tolerant, but it's best to add an occasional sprinkling of water to the plant and its soil.

Rose garden accessories

An ideal rose garden includes some rose accessories to add to the garden.

* Basket rose: A large, round basket rose adds a pretty touch to your rose garden. They're a perfect addition to a romantic seating area. It's also good to know that a rose garden basket is easy to plant and maintain.

* Flowering rose: The flowering rose, also called the blooming rose, has lots of pretty pink or white flowers and adds beauty to the landscape. In the winter, it's a great choice for your garden's Christmas tree.

* Hose rose: If you're willing to make some adjustments to the traditional rose, consider the hose rose. These hybrids are very well suited to small gardens or windowsills. They grow upright or trailing, and are relatively easy to care for.

Container Roses

Container roses are easier to grow than the traditional rose because they have no roots that need to grow in the ground.

The best thing about container roses is that they can be planted in just about any size container, from gallon cans to clay pots to large clay urns.

1. Purchase a rose in a container.

2. Dig a hole that is twice as big as the container.

3. Fill the hole with potting soil.

4. Place the rose in the container.

5. Fill the hole with more potting soil.

6. Water and give it some sunlight.

7. After a few weeks, you can repot your rose into a larger container.

The secret to growing container roses is watering them well so they don't dry out. It also helps to plant them in a sunny location.

Roses for the Backyard

You can grow roses in the garden or on the deck for a beautiful way to bring the beauty of roses indoors.

One of the easiest places to plant a rose is on the deck outside. This not only creates a focal point, but you will have the satisfaction of watching your rose every day.

You can also plant them in the garden if you prefer the traditional rose to the container. You just have to make sure that your plants are well-drained and have enough sun.

1. Dig a hole about 10 inches deep.

2. Fill the hole with fresh potting soil.

3. Water well and place the rose in the hole.

4. Plant a small sapling at the base of the rose to keep it watered and give it a bit of structure.

Grow Roses Indoors in Containers

Om 'n roos in 'n pot te plant, is 'n goeie manier om u tuin te begin, selfs al het u nie 'n goeie ruimte vir plant nie. U kan u potte met grond vul en u roos binnenshuis plant.

Die meeste roosplante sal nie goed doen sonder 'n bietjie hitte nie, dus u wil 'n hittemat onder die pot plaas om warmte te bied. U kan een roos per houer kweek.

1. Water en plaas dan die eerste twee dae u pot in die skaduwee.

2. Beweeg dit die volgende dag in helder indirekte lig.

3. Sit dit na 'n paar weke op 'n donker plek en skuif dit na 'n maand in die lig.

4. Terwyl die weer warm word, skuif u roos na 'n sonligplek totdat dit vier seisoene van son het, en skuif dit dan weer in die skaduwee vir die winter.

Hoe om roosbosse te snoei

'N Roosbos is dikwels 'n pragtige plant en is maklik om te snoei. Sodra 'n bos klaar blom, wil u dit snoei.

As u u roosbos snoei, neem die geleentheid om die vorm op te ruim.

Die eerste ding wat u wil doen, is om die ou groei tot ongeveer 12 duim hoog te verminder. U kan ook alle takke wat u paadjie kruis, afsny as u deur die tuin stap. As u klaar is, sal u 'n bosagtige vorm aan u roosbos hê.

Vervolgens wil u u roos snoei. Dit beteken om enige dooie of siek takke weg te sny en die ente van elke blaar op die takke weg te snoei om hulle eenvormig te laat lyk. Roosbosse wat gereeld op hierdie manier gesnoei word, word dikwels meer kragtig en busse.

Die meeste roosbosse is maklik om te versorg. Hulle moet in die lente en herfs gevoer word, en hulle moet in die lente bevrug word.

Die kruie wat jy in jou tuin groei, sal uit die wortels groei. Die meeste kruie wat u in die supermark sien, word geoes van plante wat in 'n kweekhuis gekweek is, of hulle is eintlik deel van 'n groter plant, genaamd 'n sny. Kruie wat uit 'n kweekhuis kom, is maklik om te groei, maar jy het nie kweekhuis nodig nie
