Roses Growing Wild

Your roses are in their most active growing cycle of the year.  If you have provided your roses with good soil and the appropriate fertilizer, you should be seeing lots of new canes.  Once a rose bloom has faded it is important to prune it off.  This is known as dead-heading.  You can pop off the bloom or prune to the second set of leaves from the top.  Doing this will encourage new cane growth and more blooms.  If you haven’t fertilized with anything recently, use a water soluble fertilizer like Mills Easy Feed, it has all the major nutrients roses need.  Your roses will reward with deeper green leaves and more blooms when given this yummy snack.
