The Potted Desert View

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.'

Caring for your Roses

Now that the nighttime temperatures are in the 70’s, powdery mildew won't be a problem for your roses. Keeping the humidity up around your roses will discourage spider mites. You can do this by spraying off the roses each morning and keeping them well watered and mulched. If you need to spray for mites, you will need to use a miticide and NOT a pesticide. Information provided by the Rose Society of Tucson.
