Roses came to popularity due to their beautiful flowers and alluring fragrance. They have stayed popular because they are a tough plant that is long-lived. Repeat-blooming roses will put on a show for many months, but they do require more upkeep as they tend to be more susceptible to insects and disease. Single-blooming roses are great for those who don’t want to worry about maintenance, or for those who desire a strong fragrance. In recent years, rose breeders have been working to cross the modern repeat-bloomers with the old roses to create the ideal mix of continuous blooms and disease resistance. Keep it to have a great Rose garden design.
Keep your choice focused to prevent a mixed planting from becoming too complex. Special care should be taken when grouping different varieties or species of roses together. This applies to foliage as well as color and shape of the flowers. Air circulation and full sunshine are important for growing healthy roses. Roses should be planted where air circulation is not hampered by screens, walls, fences, buildings, hedges or other plantings.
They should receive a minimum of six hours of direct sunlight per day. Choose an area of your garden where the roses receive sunlight in the morning (bright afternoon sun may affect the color of the flowers and burn the leaves of some roses).
Roses are also particularly allergic to draught and the dripping of water on their leaves. Choose a part of your garden not overhung by trees, shrubs or other plants that can lead to rain drip.
If you have a larger garden, you may want to group your roses in one area of your garden so as to form a separate rose garden. There are many advantages to creating a separate (enclosed) rose garden. When separated from the rest of the garden the design of the rose parterre can be adapted to the cultural needs of your roses and a separate, rose-friendly watering system can be reserved for that area. Indeed, roses should not be watered from the top as this tends to encourage the growth of leaf fungus and the appearance of pests. The garden hose, soaker or a drip watering system should be placed in the bed with the water running slowly. Also, remember that monocultural rose gardens can look very dull in Winter, so either reserve them to an area that is not visible from the house or mix them with evergreen n, grey-leaved plants that will give that area a colored touch during the Winter months.
