Keep them well-watered. Put a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to retain soil moisture. Keep the area weed-free so they aren't competing for nutrients and water. Apply a rose fertilizer or a slow-release fertilizer regularly according to package instructions. Deadhead spent blooms. Hope these tips help!
