Rose Gardening Equipment
Without the proper rose gardening equipment, it may be difficult to cultivate happy roses. You can use many of the same tools as you would for any other type of flower garden, but nonetheless, you cannot plant rose gardens without the proper tools. Equipment needed depends on the type of roses you wish to plant and the area in which you wish to plant them.
If your garden is simply going to consist of a few miniature rose bushes planted in large potters, your job is quite simple. You only need the planters, some rocks, and potting soil. You'll line the bottom of your potters with the rocks, so that the roots can take to the potting soil without trying to force their way through the planter. This procedure is similar to planting any flower in a pot. You'll then place your bush into the planter and pack it tightly with potting soil, being sure that the roots are completely covered.
However, if you are going to begin a true rose garden, much more is required. You'll need shovels and aerators, especially if you live in an area that hinders gardening due to thick black or red clay earth. In these cases, your rose garden may require additional dirt or potting soil, as well, in order to assist the roots in their ability to grasp the earth and find the nutrients they require.
You'll need plenty of space; roses do not like being jammed together. A rose garden will also require a good amount of water and rose food. While many plants can get all the nutrients they need from the soil within the garden, roses are more delicate and require a greater amount of nutrients, which must be sprinkled onto the top soil and watered so that it soaks into the soil and can be absorbed by the roses.
