The Potted Desert View
This blog is for you, the native or transplanted desert dweller. Our harsh and varied desert climates continually present a challenge for gardeners. Those of you who have moved from a colder climate such as the mid-west or New England, you have most likely tried to find container gardening information that tells you how to grow the kind of garden like you had 'back home.'

Care for your roses as the weather heats up!

We have been talking the past few weeks about caring for your roses in April . It is key to continue to water your roses and increase the frequency to three times per week as the temperatures rise, especially as they consistently climb above 85 degrees. In addition, water to 18-24 inches deep. You do not want the soil soggy; however, you do not want the soil to dry before the next watering. To assist in retaining moisture in the soil, apply a 2 to 3 inch layer of mulch. If you have any other questions around roses, drop in a comment.

Happy Gardening!
