How much time do you spend tending your roses?

6 years ago

I find myself sliding down the slippery slope to becoming a rose gardener... Before I get in deeper, would those of you with ten or more roses give me an idea of how much time you spend on them? Which roses and which activities - e.g, pruning, tying on, deadheading, watering, fertilizing, picking off japanese beetles? Did you have any leaps of efficiency over the years? When did you hit a limit of what you could do yourself? I am not interested in hearing about gardens maintained with hired help, but those cared for by a single owner, maybe with an occasional helping hand.
