Roses need at least 5 to 6 hours of sun, 1 inch of deep watering a week, and good air circulation to minimize disease. A few varieties, such as Knock Out, Carefree Wonder and Iceberg, will bloom in light shade. Be sure to amend your soil with compost during planting. Roses also appreciate top dressing with compost once a year and a rose fertilizer every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season. Wondering how to prune your roses?
