Growing roses can be easy.

Most gardeners tell me they want a rose garden. Time constraints today demand easy steps to see quick results and the considerable cost that we invest in our gardens require lasting success.

When asked why they don’t grow roses most people tell me they think roses are difficult to grow. When asked 85% of people say roses are their favorite flower. Why don’t they grow them? They believe roses are too difficult to grow. Growing roses can be as easy or as complex as you want it to be.

Let’s dispel the misconception that roses are difficult to grow by planning a path to successfully establish your rose garden so that you can enjoy the pleasure and the beauty, fragrance and joy of walking through and photographing your very own rose garden, the Queen of flowers.

First decide what you want to do with your roses and the type of roses you want to grow. Be sure you have 6-8 hours of full sun, a source of water and you are half way there. I also posted this project on Hometalk.com the largest home and garden social network where you can find countless ideas whether you are a novice or an expert gardener. You can also read How To Plant A Bare Root Rose, and A Rose Pruning Primer for other rose tips.
