The nice thing about drip irrigation is that you can start small and expand as you wish. Start with an inexpensive kit that simply connects to a spigot near your garden. Add a battery-operated timer to automatically turn the water on and off. Drip irrigation is a good way to reduce diseases in gardens. Fungi and diseases often thrive on wet leaves, but with micro irrigation the water is delivered only to the plant’s base. The leaves never get wet and diseases don’t get started.

Well drained soil is critical to successful rose growing. If you have heavy clay soil, which does not drain well, dig it up and add organic materials such as compost, peat moss or nitrogen fortified wood products before planting your rose bushes.Prune your roses each year to stimulate new growth and keep them healthy. The object of pruning is to remove all dead canes and open up the center for better air circulation. When the plants are dormant, cut back the canes by one third to one half.
