  • There is a combo fertilizer / bug granules that you can sprinkle on the ground about once every three months. You should be flowers around Mother's Day.

  • I hack them back in the spring (this weekend) to about 3 feet tall, removing thin and dead (black/brown) canes, and keeping the thicker/green ones, apply liberal amounts of Miracle Gro FOR roses, and that's it!! :o)
