How Do I Choose?

There are so many different types of roses to choose from it can seem an overwhelming task. Ask yourself these two simple questions and the decision just got easier!

Do you want a rose that is showy, attractive and colorful for your garden bed?
- OR -
Do you want a rose for a specific purpose?

Once you define the usage then it is quite simple to pick out the rose you want. Looking for a rose for cutting and bringing in the house, Hybrid Teas are your traditional long stem. Looking for a rose to incorporate into your landscape design, Floribunda roses will give you a great display of blooms in clusters or The Knockout® Roses which blooms from June to November. Looking for ground cover, check out the Flower Carpet series in the pink pots!

Top quality brands are also available in the rose market. Only a few years old, Easy Elegance Roses are selected for their relative growing ease.

And of course what about a Climbing rose for that arbor, pergola, or fence. Nothing else is more inviting than a vertical element in the landscape. Some of the most fragrant climbers are David Austin’s English Shrub Roses.

Not Sure About Planting Roses?

Tips when Planting Roses:

  • Plant your rose where it will get at least six hours of sun each day
  • Dig a hole at least 18 inches in diameter and 18 inches deep. 
  • Discard half the soil and replace it with compost, peat moss or Espoma Organic Planting Mix
  • Mix approximately 3 cups of Espoma Rose-tone into amended soil. Refill the hole with enough soil so that when the plant is planted, the soil level is the same as the surrounding area.
  • Add mulch and water.

Tips when Caring for Roses:

  • Feed monthly with Espoma Rose-tone throughout the growing season.
  • Prune to promote blooms
    • Wear gloves!
    • Prune in late winter, when the buds begin to swell.
    • Consider plant shape. A rose bush, for example, benefits from the air circulation of an “urn” or vase shape.
    • Clean cuts are best. “Bypass” style cutters work very well.
    • Clip off any old dead “canes” (stems) or dead portions of them, as close to the plant base (or next to a bud) as possible.
  • Water deeply and infrequently—but not the leaves—that will promote disease! Water in the morning to discourage black spot and mildew.
  • Treat disease promptly. Espoma Earth-tone 3n1 safely kills fungus, insects & mites.
