So the best advice on how to care for roses is just get out of their way and let them do their thing the way they know best.

However there are ways to taking this otherwise wild plant and taming it into an even more aesthetic form that produces an abundance of beautiful roses. And most of that comes down to proper pruning.

Not to mention that the synthetic stuff can be toxic to you, your family, your pets and the environment.

Now there are organic fertilizers that are very soil and environment friendly. They will work fine for any soil that seems to be deficient and will liven up your rose plant and keep it healthy. Even better then that and for no expense you can make your own compost with all your left over organic table scraps, some grass clippings and dried leaves. You can mix this in with your soil or use it as a top covering for adding excellent nutrition for your soil and rose plants. That’s how to care for your roses and your garden soil.
