The Q&A Archives: caring for a hybrid rose bush

Question: Last summer I planted a hybrid rose bush. Will it bloom this year? Also what do I need to do to nurture?

Answer: Providing your rose bush survived the winter (you didn't say whether or not you protected it from the elements), it should bloom for you. Roses need at least 8 hours of direct sunshine each day, moist but not soggy wet soil, and regular feedings throughout the growing season. Use a specialized rose food and apply according to label directions.

Best wishes with your rose bush!
