How do you make a rose bed?


Try to situate the rose bed where it will receive at least six hours of full sun. Dig the space well to a depth of one foot and incorporate some well rotted manure, compost or peat moss. Keep in mind that you can only stretch comfortably to three feet so a bed of six feet wide can be easily reached from all sides. Arrange your roses with the tallest ones in the center ( or at the back if one sided )medium ones next and little ones in the front. Tree roses can be used in the center instead of the tall rose bushes.
