Roses love the sun, so pick a spot for your roses where the summer sun will reach them for at least a few hours. Roses thrive in nutrient-rich soil. In spring and summer, you can use an organic fertilizer on your roses. Roses do not mind a dry spell; extra watering tends not to be necessary. Plant the roses at a 40-50 cm distance from each other or from other plants. When planting, place the spot where the stems turn into roots just below the surface, then firmly press the plants into the ground and water.
Beautifully flowering roses are achieved by pruning in winter. Prune in February-March, but not when it is freezing. During pruning, remove thin and dead stems, leave just a few strong young stems and cut those down to a length of ±25 cm. In summer, you can encourage a second bloom by cutting off dead flowers.
