Watering Roses

Roses need about one inch of water per week. If rainfall is insufficient, soak the soil to a depth of 12” from soil level. The best way to do this is to let your garden hose trickle slowly. This gives the water a chance to soak in instead of running off. You can also use a soaker hose to water several plants at once. Avoid spraying water on leaves.
