Gardening can be a very rewarding experience. There is nothing like rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty (literally) to better your home. Flowers, bushes, and other plants can really brighten up your landscape, instantly improving your home’s curb appeal. Unfortunately, gardening can also be one of the most frustrating things you do as a homeowner.
You take great care of your flowers. You water them daily, you researched the best fertilizers, and, despite your best efforts, something is not right. Your flowers look worse for wear. Turns out, TLC and a green thumb are not enough to protect your flowers, especially roses, which are prone to have a reputation of suffering greatly from pests and diseases.

Protecting your Roses
- Proper Plant Selection: Not all plants are created equally. Some species of roses grow better under certain conditions. It is important to select a variety that will thrive in your area.
- Sunlight: Roses require six to eight hours of sun a day. In fact, the more sun the better. So plan ahead. You can’t plant roses just anywhere.
- Fertilizers: Feed roses with a balanced rose fertilizer on a regular schedule.
- Keep a Lookout: When watering your plants, look for anything specific. Early detection and treatment are the best ways to keep your roses healthy. If a problem arises, turn first to natural and nonchemical intervention. If that doesn’t work, then try low-toxicity intervention. Then, if nothing else is working, chemical intervention is a perfectly acceptable last resort.
