#ProPlantTips for Care

Shrub Roses are so easy to live with! Just give them plenty of sunlight, air circulation and well-drained soil.

They need at least six hours of sunlight a day. And you can improve drainage with extra soil heaped into a planting mound or raised bed!

Give your Rose life-long support with Nature Hills Root Booster when you plant. Our experts recommend it for Roses, as it develops a symbiotic relationship with the feeder roots.

Supply a consistent amount of water on a regular schedule. Place a three-inch layer of mulch to keep water and mud from splashing up onto the foliage..then pull it back from directly touching the stems.

Feed Roses a high-quality slow-release fertilizer for flowering plants according to the directions. Reapply as directed until mid-summer.

Rake up all the dropped foliage in fall; then bag them for removal in your yard waste. In early spring, cut all stems down to six inches from the ground for a fresh start.
