Red Rose Bushes for Sale Online
Red Rose bushes are a very popular shrub of choice in many gardens, and it's for a good reason. They offer loads of varieties of shape, and size. Their classic red color brings romance and elegance to your garden. With all their variations, you are bound to find one that fits your landscape perfectly. They go best when planted as a hedge, bush, ground cover, container plant, and even as a cut flower. It is very hard to come across a plant that is as versatile as a rose bush! Not to mention, their stunning appearance and heavenly fragrance make them an incredible experience every time someone walks by.
How to Care for Rose Bushes
During the hot and dry summer months, roses love to be watered. We recommend watering your bushes at least twice a week by soaking their entire root zone. It is very important, however, to not overwater your rose bushes. This could result in root rot from their root system sitting in standing water. It is also important to note, if you overwater them right before their dormancy period in the winter, you could potentially ruin the plant. Their soil will be too soaked in water and negatively affect their roots. In the fall, reduce the amount of water you give your roses due to the cooler weather.
Depending on the type of rose bush you buy will depend on how you need to space them. Just remember to plant them far enough apart that they have plenty of space to grow to their full maturity. Also, do not plant your rose bushes any time of the year except for the spring.
Regularly pruning your rose bushes is a necessity. Mostly focus on deadheading flowers, remove any deadwood, and get rid of diseased portions of your plant. Don't forget to watch for diseases or infestations. Roses are hardy plants, but they can still fall victim to black spots or root rot if you don't pay attention to them.
Between April and June, we recommend fertilizing once a month. Your red rose bushes will love a well-balanced fertilizer like Espoma Bio-Tone Starter Plus at Garden Goods Direct. This fertilizer is especially helpful when you first transplant your new bush to your garden. In May and June, try mixing an additional tablespoon of Epsom salt with your fertilizer. The magnesium sulfate in the salt will help promote healthier new growth.
To encourage healthy growth, conserve water, and reduce your plant's stress we recommend you mulch this bush. Apply about a 2 to 4-inch later of mulch, grass clippings, shredded bark, etc. around the base of your bush. Make sure you leave a 1-inch space between the trunk and the mulch.
Winterizing Your Rose Bushes
To prepare your rose bushes for the winter it is important to stop any fertilizing 6 weeks before the first frost of the season. However, continue to water during any dry fall weather to prepare them for a dry winter. Also, do not prune your shrubs in the fall to avoid cutting off any new growth. If you must remove any dead or diseased parts of your bush, carefully do so. Before adding any mulch or compost around your rose bushes, make sure you clean their beds to prevent any diseases from happening.
