What works for someone in Illinois may not work for you in Phoenix. But a plant expert who lives %26amp; gardens in Phoenix is who you want advise from. Contact your local univ extension office and ask to speak with a MASTER GARDENER. I know your state has a great MASTER GARDENER program %26amp; Phoenix has some of the best MASTER GARDENERS in your state. They are highly trained volunteers by the univ of arizona just to answer questions from home gardeners just like you.

Reply:i like my roses on the bush ..... i let it bloom till the petals fall off or look bad then i trim the bud off just below the first set of 5 leaves

when watering i only water 10 to 12 inches from the base ... never in the leaves this helps the roots to " look " for water and wont mold or burn the leaves

i use a rose food.... again not on the plant just around the base a few inches from the plant

the soil ph is sort of acidic for roses once a month i add a soil acidifier but you should check your soil first to measure the ph

some roses grow H I P S so don't dead head the rose if you want H I P S

H I P S are found on a lot of older roses OLD meaning when they were found or created they are like a seed and grow orange or red ..... they can start new roses with some types or there are recipes you can make tea or butter from them

( cool huh )

its important to know what rose you own .... there are many rose varieties and caring for them can differ from rose to rose

is it a bush shrub climber rambler tree or mini ... see what i mean lol

this sight has been invaluable its free and has more info than one person could ever know i hope it helps
Reply:What I do, is--when the rose blooms, I either enjoy it on the bush or in the house, but I cut it off and start the 'pruning', before Fall gets here.

I'm not in Phoenix, but I DO know you enjoy them first and you can prune them right off to do that, in a vase!!!

I bought a Hybrid Tea Rose and OMIGOSH! that rose is the best smelling rose I have ever smelled. I think the name of it was "PEACE". It is yellow with a red rim. Awesome!!

I'd water every chance I got,or when you see the leaves droopy.

Can I give my adult female rabbit rose leaves?

She had some earlier and I'm not sure if she's allowed to have that in her diet or if it's toxic to her. Any help?
Can I give my adult female rabbit rose leaves?
There are a lot of garden plants that rabbits can eat and roses are one garden plant that rabbits can eat every part of.
Reply:Yes, rabbits can eat rose leaves providing they don't have pesticides etc on them and aren't brown.

Rose leaves would be a normal part of a wild rabbits diet.
Reply:no it is not toxic ,but rose leaves is not in her diet,
Reply:If I was you I wouldn't give rose leaves to a rabbit
Reply:Rabbits, would tottally eat any type of vegetation, even though it's not in their diet, try not to feed them roses, they are'nt toxic.

Feed them rabbit food or leaves from trees, or even carrots :D

Hope this helps!

I think that is what it is called. It looks like a pinkish peach pit and smell pretty. I was given one as a kid and would lilke to get some for around the house.
Has anyone ever heard of a rose stone?
oh I know what you're talking about! I got one too when I was a kid. sorry though, I haven't seen one in 30 years. if ya find one let me know, they were great to put in your clothing drawers and closets.
Reply:I haven't ever heard of it but I googled it and it seems that it has something to do with Primavera fragrances. Thats all I could find. Sounds wonderful.
Reply:You probably talk about the Rose quartz which is one of the most desirable varieties of quartz. The pink to rose red color completely unique, unlike any other pink mineral species. Rose quartz is used as an ornamental stone and as a gemstone.

Reply:To the best of my knowlege, there is no black rose (yet), although many breeders have been trying for one for decades. Very dark purple roses DO exist; for information about them, contact the American Rose Society.

Besides Black is no a good sign.

Reply:r u serious ? is it available ?
Reply:There are none. Some people will spray paint a rose with black paint. It is a sign of death %26gt;%26gt; a black rose %26lt;%26lt;. Looks like you did"nt know that--- but your boyfriend in Iraq does. Don"t send him one------he"s having to deal with life and death events there ---- send your love instead-- and pictures .
Reply:1. Why the heck are you sending someone a black rose? The black rose is a curse, generally a death curse.

2. There's not such thing as a black rose, although they grow some pretty dark reds that look black when they're still a bud.

3. If you're really insistent, get a black silk rose at a crafts store - like Michaels or AC Moore.
Reply:Send away for a Jackson Perkins catalog or check them out on line. They have all kinds of roses.

  • My rose bushes will not blossom why?

    i have used rose fertilizer and plant food on them. they grow nice but no flowers.
    My rose bushes will not blossom why?
    Check the fertilizer you're using...My guess is that it contains a lot of nitrogen...OK quick fertilizer 101-There a always three numbers on any fertilizer you buy; the first is always nitrogen, the second is always phosphorus, and the third is always potash...Nitrogen, makes a plant grow up, and turn green, phosphorus, promotes strong root growth, and blooming; and potash is an all around tonic...When fertilizing blooming plants I fertilize with a normal fertilizer the first 2-3 times, then I switch to a "bloom booster" these products vary considerably; look for a product where the second number is higher than the first...Also it sounds like you're OVER fertilizing...plant food, and fertilizer, are the same might want to stop feeding(fertilizing)...
    Reply:Are they getting full sun? Don't feed them anymore for 6 weeks or so.
    Reply:roses need a TON of full sun...i had one small one do that, and had to transplant it...
