New house came with lots of roses - good care references? (5a)

8 years ago

We just bought a house that has several very large rosebushes scattered around. They seem to be "old-fashioned" type (?) roses - very thorny bushes with small, simple flowers and lovely aromas.

I've always heard roses are very difficult but I've decided to try my hand at keeping and caring for these. I suspect the previous owner maintained them with conventional methods but I do NOT spray anything, period, so I need to learn to care for them organically.

Can anyone recommend a good, comprehensive rose care guide? Thanks so much for any advice! I honestly have no idea if the leaves on the rosebushes are yellowing and falling off because it's in the 30s or because they need something like iron. ;)
