✅ Before Planting: Rose seeds necessitate a stratification period, involving cold and moist storage, for successful germination. Plant the seeds at a depth of 1/4 inch in a seed-planting mix within planting trays. Ensure the mix is adequately moist, seal it in a plastic bag, and refrigerate for up to 10 weeks. After the stratification period, transfer the trays to a warm environment. Once the seedlings emerge, transplant them into individual pots.

✅ Watering: Provide weekly watering near the soil, avoiding overhead watering to prevent fungal diseases.

✅ Fertilizer: Once established, fertilize the roses each spring, or opt for well-rotted manure for a comparable effect.

✅ Harvesting: When cutting roses, do so when the blooms are formed but not fully open. Exercise caution around thorns.

✅ Tips: Pruning is crucial for optimal rose bush development. Conduct pruning in the spring when leaf buds start appearing. Make cuts 1/4 inch above the leaf buds and remove twig-like branches.
