Summer Rose Care

Gary Hileog from Michigan State University Extension discusses mid season rose care. He discusses how to prune spent flowers, including exactly how far down on the stem to cut. He also shows how to prune out blind shoots, which is a shoot with no flower. He says that black spot on your roses will cause the rose to loose leaves, which will prevent it from storing enough energy to survive the winter. He suggests one pound of nitrogen fertilizer per month until August, and no fertilizer after August first.

Rose Care

Master Gardener Alice Michelson talks with Ed Thralls from the Orange County Cooperative Extension about rose care. Alice says that she enjoys roses because you can easily share them with friends by bringing them a bouquet, and roses grow all year long. Roses need six hours minimum sun, they need lots of water, monthly fertilizer, and fungicide. Alice says that she only buys fortuniana rose stock, which grows well in Central Florida. She amends the soil greatly when planting with a good planting mix with mushroom or cow manure. Alice says that blackspot, aphids, thrip, and beetles are her biggest problems. Finally, Alice recommends the Central Florida Rose Society.
