In spring of year, you will need to prune your rose bush. The blackened portions of your rose bush need pruned away to promote additional new growth over entire plant. While pruning your plant in spring season, pull weed starts so that your plant is not in competition for water or soil nutrients over growing seasons.
As you plan your rose garden and begin placement, planting roses of same color next to each other will enhance over all look of rose garden. Using too many flowers in one area though, can make entire rose garden look more jumbled than a wave of color.
One last thing for you to think about when creating and planning a rose garden is to remember to test your soil. Soil testers are widely available and relatively inexpensive. When testing your soil, your pH level is going to be most important for success with roses. A pH level of 5.5 to 6.6 is ultimate situation for raising a rose garden of your own.
