Laura commented on my roses in the photos of the puppies. I wanted to tell you what I do to care for them.
I use Bayer Advanced for Trees and Shrubs, once a year. Then I cover the ground with about 3-5 inches of pine needles around the trunks of the roses.
Remember after the blooms fall off, using scissors, cut on an angle on the stem. Make sure it is just above a 5 leaf area. Just above.....Within a couple weeks you'll see a new shoot.

I use epsom salts on my roses. I cut them back 2/3 of the way, every Feb. 14th. My roses are beauties as well.
Did you know that rabbit poo makes wonderful rose fertilizer?
