How to Grow a Healthy Rose
Growing healthy roses, or for that matter any plant starts with the soil. The use of chemicals should never be used in the place of a good organic fertilizer. For the best results try to fertilize every three to four weeks during the growing season. Any plant that is suffering due to lack of nutrition will always be more susceptible to disease.
