Rose care is easier than you think—anyone can grow them successfully. Container roses are perfect for newly gardeneers because they grow more easily. Plant your roses in a sunny location with good drainage. For the best show of flowers and the healthiest plants, rose bushes should receive six to eight hours of sunlight daily. Fertilize them regularly for impressive flowers. Water them evenly to keep the soil moist; avoid wetting the foliage and point directly at the soil. Prune established rose bushes in early spring.
