It really depends on where you live, the type of soil and what type of rose and it's living conditions as to how you care for them. I put used coffee grounds on the base once a month. Nothing else. Mine grow like mutant monsters. The growth is out of controll. I use dish soap water in a spray bottle for the aphids. Dont use pestacides or anything else. Im in SC and have red clay dirt, not black dirt. Maybe thats the difference.
