Bookmark This Article to Delicious

If you have ever wanted to grow roses, but though it was too difficult to grow roses, let me show you how to grow large colorful roses. Organic rose gardening is actually easy and the results are more than you would imagine. Roses have been grown throughout time and without the need for harsh chemicals so there is no reason chemicals would need to be used for today�s gardens. There are some basic steps you need to consider when selecting roses for your rose garden.

Step 1 � Know your Zone

Roses grow differently in different zones. When you buy your roses make sure you read the label to determine your hardiness zone. Roses that are listed as being grown on their �own-root� will always be harder than roses that are grafted. Conduct a little research on the internet to determine how roses will grow in your area. Places like California and Florida can grow roses with a very high hardiness rating.

Step 2 � Size of your Roses

Roses come in many different sizes from miniature roses to roses that will cover a wide area. Climbing roses can grow up to 12 inches or more. Make sure you have enough room for your roses to grow. Again, read the label of the roses you want to grow.

Step 3 � Color of your Roses

There are so many different colors of roses and if you want red and yellow roses make sure that is the type of roses you plant in your garden.

Step 4 � Stop to smell the roses

Some roses have an extremely fragrant smell and others barely smell at all. A rose fragrance is determined by time of day. You can smell the fragrance of a red rose better during the mid day and white and yellows roses are fleeting in the morning.
Like any other plant you will sometimes have to deal with a pest problem. Rose bushes are prone to being invaded by many different kinds of damaging insects like rose midge larva, rose cane borer, thrips, Japanese beetles, stem girders, aphids, rose slugs, mites, caterpillars, scale insects, and rose chafers. Nobody wants to have to deal with these pests but to sustain the life of the plant, it is necessary to correct the problem.

You have several options of how you are planning to deal with the pest problem after you have identified which type of bug you are dealing with. If you only see one or two bugs you can try picking them off the roses and killing them yourself. Make sure to remove the entire leaf you see them on because they could have laid eggs that are still hidden on the leaf. You always have the choice of using synthetic or natural chemicals to help you get rid of the pests.

Make sure to follow the directions on the package of how to use these types of chemicals. Even natural or organic chemicals can be harmful to people if they are used improperly. If you are adamant about not using any type of chemicals on your rose bushes, you can always try using the natural enemies of the pests. Not all bugs that you find in your garden are destructive to plants. Lady bugs and some types of wasps eat pests that can damage rose bushes. You can check your local garden center to see if this is an option for you with the type of pests that you have.

This was just a few steps to consider when deciding if you want to grow roses. You can learn more about organic rose garden and so much more at the site listed below.
