Bare Root Shrub & Landscape Roses

Shrub roses are extremely easy to maintain. They bloom profusely and are very disease resistant, thus making an excellent addition to the garden as a flowering shrub.

Roses are adaptable to many garden styles. In formal gardens, the shrubs may be groomed to an even shape. In informal gardens, they can be allowed to do their own thing. Roses prefer rich, deep soil. If your garden has less than ideal soil, be sure to add some really good soil amendment. Roses also respond well to fertilization and there are lots of different formulas available.  For the best bloom, choose one that has a high phosphorous content as opposed to one containing high nitrogen. The recommended application time is every six weeks during the growing season, but check the directions on the fertilizer that you buy. Roses can also make excellent container plants.
