Roses have always been a favorite among flower lovers. These plants are commonly grown in home gardens. Most of the rose varieties are easy to grow and if properly taken care of, they will reward you with fragrant and colorful flowers. If you are interested in having them in your home garden, then it will be better to have a fair understanding on how to grow roses. Some of the basic aspects of rose plant care is to provide them with an ample amount of sunlight and water. Besides that, proper pruning, feeding, pest and disease control, etc., are also vital. As far as feeding is concerned, you may go for organic or synthetic fertilizers. Nowadays, most of the gardeners prefer organic fertilizers to other types. You may either resort to commercial organic fertilizers or the homemade ones.

Once you found the stems like that, cut just above a node (the place on the stem where leaves emerge) and cut at an angle. Place them immediately in water before you proceed to the next step. If you score up the bark on both sides of the cane (approximately for one inch) it will produce roots even easier. Place the planting medium in small containers - 4 inch container will be most suited - then, if you want to use root hormone, moist the end of the cutting in water and then stick it in the rooting hormone powder. Once you remove the excess with a little shake, make a hole in the soil with a pencil and place your cutting (if your cane has two nodes, place one under the soil, if it has three, you can place two nodes under the growth medium), gently firming the soil around the plant with finger pressure.
They love slightly acidic soil conditions and require fertilizers to grow. During early spring time, you need to feed a balanced fertilizer to your plants weekly. You should stop feeding your plants about 6 weeks before the first frost. During winter, you need to protect the rose plants from winter damage. This can be done by cutting about 30 to 36 inches of the tall canes and tying the tips together. Clear off any dead leaves, stems, around the plant. You should till about 12 inches of soil around the center of the plant. Then cover the soil mounds with straw, leaves, etc. Mulch about 15 to 18 inches of the soil mound. After winter passes, you can remove the mulch and soil from around the plant base. Leave only about 2 inches of mulch to make sure water is retained around the plant during summer, and prevent weed growth.
