|Roses do best with uniform soil moisture throughout the growing season. The general rule of thumb suggests that one inch of water be applied per week during the growing season. The amount and frequency of application will depend on your soil type. Sandy soils will need more frequent irrigation than heavier clay soils. Hot temperatures would also call for more frequent irrigation. Start by watering deeply once or twice each week. If your roses are not getting enough water you'll see wilting leaves; if they are getting too much water, the leaves will begin to turn yellow. Eventually you'll figure out how frequently you'll need to water your roses. Wish there were some other way to determine how much water to apply!
