and I don't know what to do with it... at all. My Grandmother (in law) says that she cuts hers back to where it's only a foot tall in the spring and by summer it's ginormous. What do I do to mine? Do I need to do anything to it now? It looks crappy
I think I'm going to have to prune mine all the way down, clear out all the dead leaves underneath, trim it and water it. So far, that's all I got. Says it needs compost in the fall and spring... not sure how to do that?
You can make your own compost which is very green btw. Get a compost bin or make one yourself out of chicken wire. Or you can take on of those outdoor trashcans, turn it over and cut the bottom out, that will work too. Put all your green waste into it. Grass clippings, fruit and vegetable scraps, drier lint, coffee grounds, etc. Once every couple of weeks pick the trash can up, empty the contents and shovel back into the tash can (to get air). Moistion with water. After awhile the stuff will break down to create compost. Take the compost when its done and just layer on top of soil where the rose bush is.
