Looking After Your Rose Garden
There are a lot of things to consider in keeping a beautiful rose garden. If you are just starting out planting your own garden, there might be many things you still need to know and find out.

Should your roses not bloom there can be any number of reasons. You should first consider the position of your rose garden.
Make sure that your roses are planted in an open area and can get morning sun. It is important to have your rose garden exposed to at least six hours of sunlight throughout the day. Too much shade may cause your roses to be unhealthy. Make sure that your garden has a sufficient supply of water. For ease your garden should be placed in an area which is near your source of water.
It should be watered at least one inch per week in the growing season. However, take care not to over water as this can lead your roses to die. If your roses are not performing well, check your garden for over-watering. Proper drainage should be put in place so that your roses are not left in standing water.

But be careful not to overdo the fertilizer because it contains concentrated chemicals, especially Nitrogen. If this happens, the plant may be damaged and can grow unwanted extra leaves instead of blooms. To keep your garden healthy, use a fertilizer with the right ratio of nutrients. This will balance the growth of the roses and maintain the nutrients of the soil in your garden.
Check if your garden has enough foliage. If the bush you are growing does not have enough foliage, it will not produce the food the plant needs to make flowers. All your hard work and waiting will be wasted. Inadequate foliage or fertilizer can also result in some diseases. The most important factor in looking after your rose garden is determining if the soil pH is balanced. You should know if it is too low or too high.

It is essential to look after your rose garden to monitor your plants and if the soil is providing the roses with the enough nutrients.
