3 Tips for Taking Care of Roses

Oct 16th 2023

Most people will agree that roses are the queens of the garden. They can provide a gorgeous pop of color to your landscaping and can be used to create beautiful bouquets. If you plan carefully and care for roses properly, then you can achieve a truly rewarding garden treasure. Purchasing roses from a local flower shop is also a great way to show someone you’re thinking of them. According to the Society of American Florists, about 77% of flowers purchased are with a specific reason or special occasion in mind. If you are ready to try your hand at caring for the roses you purchase, then here are a few tips on how to care for them properly.

1. Choose Carefully

As soon as you start shopping for roses, you’ll quickly discover that there are many different varieties to choose from. Each one will have its own special requirements and rewards. Do a little research to make sure you are choosing the rose that will suit your needs and fall within the care and maintenance requirements that you can handle. For instance, if you are expecting sweet-smelling roses, you want to be sure to purchase a fragrant variety.

2. Provide Their Needs

Really research exactly what your specific type of roses will need. Most roses have some basic requirements, but some will also have specific requirements that you’ll need to pay attention to. In general, most roses will need about six hours of full sun. You will need to choose the spot you display them in your home carefully to ensure that they are receiving this sun each day. Roses will also need fresh water to stay alive and look their best.

3. Prune Carefully

When you receive roses from our shop, they will come in a beautiful vase for you to use. However, if you have another vase you'd like to use, it's important to cut and prune the stem and leaves carefully if you have to. Doing so will ensure water and nutrients are traveling through the plant efficiently.
