Almost everyone loves roses. People use them to send messages all the
time. These messages range from “I Love You” to “Thank you for being
a friend” to “ I’m sorry for your loss.” However, most of the roses
purchased for these occasions come straight from a floral shop. Many
people believe growing roses is a tedious and painful task, filled with
both literal and figurative thorns. But they couldn’t be more wrong,
and with just a little education they could have a beautiful supply
of roses right in their own landscape.
There are a myriad of different types of roses. Each one grows in a
different climate and a different situation. Some roses grow on shrubs.
Some grow on vines. There are gigantic roses and tiny miniature roses.
How is one to tell the difference between them? Information is the key.
Go to the local greenhouse, browse the Internet, or buy some books (provided
they list the climate specific types of roses).
Regardless of the type of rose, most of them require similar growing
conditions: they need to be planted in early spring and they need around
6 hours of sunlight, but they can be planted in windier areas where
other plants would normally fail. Most species of roses are quite resilient
and grow very well.
Growing roses is simple, though the actually process varies depending
on the type of plant you purchased. But like most plants, you dig the
appropriate sized hole and gently put in the starter plant. Cover it
up and use the fertilizer you purchased at the greenhouse (you did purchase
the fertilizer, right?). There are many different brands of fertilizers,
however most rose growers like the organic material since it is just
putting back into nature what others have taken out. Once this is done,
sit back and watch your roses grow (though this will take a while).
There are, of course, predators who try to ruin your roses. Mildew is
one of these. This is solved simply by making sure that your roses have
good air circulation around them. Roses are also susceptible to the
advances the aphid, but a simple hose will take care of them. Just remember
to keep the air moving around the plants.
The last thing to remember about roses is that, though they are so beautiful,
they do bear thorns. Anyone who has accidentally picked up the gorgeous,
open flower only to find a sharp spine in his or her thumb knows this
fact well. But by watching carefully where you hold a rose, you can
easily avoid these traps.
With that being said, roses are a beautiful addition to any landscape.
Whether you chose the vining rose or the shrub rose, the big or the
small, roses always brighten up the terrain. And ladies, your husband
will no longer have an excuse as to why he didn’t bring a dozen roses
to your last date.
