How To Care for Tea Roses
Hybrid tea roses do their best in full sun, but they can tolerate light shade if necessary. Full sun allows their blooms to grow to their best potential and creates a better resistance to any diseases. Typically they need 4 to 6 hours of full sun each day. However, bright, direct afternoon sun could be too strong and burn their blossoms.
Tea roses require well-drained loam soil. They prefer slightly acidic soil that is rich in organic matter. Hybrid tea roses are repeat bloomers, meaning they are heavy feeders and benefit from constant applications of fertilizer. Begin in early spring, a month before new growth, or whenever you remove their winter protection. Depending on the fertilizer used, continue to feed weekly or every other week. Stop fertilizing around 6 weeks before the first expected frost, this will prevent tender new growth from being damaged.
Mulching these shrubs is a great way to cool their roots and conserve water. In the spring, add a 3 to 4 inch later when removing their winter protection. If you live in a warmer climate, mulch when the leaf buds begin to swell. In other words, your plant is moving into an active growth phase after staying dormant.
Following the rule of thumb for most garden plants, 1 to 2 inches of water each week is usually plenty, however, this of course varies by climate and growing conditions. For example, hot climates have sandier soils and need more frequent watering schedules than cool, coastal climates. If your shrub's top 3 inches of soil are dry, it's time to water.
If you are already in the habit of cutting blossoms, you will have a significantly less amount of pruning to do. Early spring is the best time to prune before new growth occurs. To prune, cut out any damaged, diseased, or dead canes. Prune remaining stronger canes by around a third of their length, down to 1 to 2 feet. This is considered hard-pruning and it encourages large flower blooms and strong stems.
