Special Care Gardening – Rose Bushes That Need Extra Attention


When you’re new to growing roses, you’re probably not interested in choosing any roses that require extra attention. But, as your experience and confidence grows, you may be ready to tackle roses that require special care. Gardening rose bushes that are finicky takes time and experience, but can provide such beautiful results!

Hybrid tea roses are often considered those that need some special care. Gardening rose bushes of this type can be a bit more difficult, but you can learn some tips that will make it easier to provide their special care. Gardening rose bushes like these produce some absolutely beautiful results.

Hybrid tea roses are tall, long-stemmed and ideal for cutting. There is usually one flower per stem. They make the most beautiful cut flowers of any rose I can think of. Hybrid tea roses are hardy in USDA zones 5-9, and should over winter quite nicely if properly mulched.

Though hybrid tea roses are thought to need special care, gardening rose bushes of this variety requires the same conditions of other roses. The difference is that while many other roses will forgive you a little if the conditions are not perfect, hybrid tea roses will not. You must meet the needs of these roses precisely to get them to perform for your garden.

Following are the things you must do to ensure your hybrid tea roses remain healthy and bloom.

1) Give them the right soil – Roses require soil with a pH level of between 6.5 and 6.5 and they need soil with good drainage. Add some peat moss and compost and make sure you check your pH level before planting, and every three years afterward.
2) Give them enough water – Roses don’t like wet feet, but they cannot live without proper water. Depending upon how hot and dry your conditions are, you should water for 15-20 minutes 2-3 times a week during the growing season. Don’t water in the evening, as this can cause powdery mildew to develop.
3) Give them plenty of sun – Roses need six hours of sun each day to thrive and bloom. They will be much happier if most of this sun is in the morning and they are protected from the hottest afternoon sun.
4) Give them space – Putting rose bushes too close together is asking for trouble. They must have air circulation between the plants to avoid disease. Each rose bush you buy will come with spacing recommendations – follow them closely.
5) Feed them well – If you want blooms, feed your roses regularly. Blooming requires lots of nutrients, so the more you feed, the more flowers you’ll have. Follow the feeding recommendations that come with each rose bush you purchase.

That isn’t so hard, is it? Though they’re considered special care; gardening rose bushes of the hybrid tea variety isn’t really difficult. It’s just precise. If you follow the instructions to the letter, your lovely long stem roses will be the envy of the neighborhood!
