Here you’ll find the tools and resources that I use, or that I’m testing, to get my roses looking the best! And just a few of my favorite garden tools. 🙂
The reputable rose site I use for quality roses. They have a great selection and can ship to most places. It arrives in great condition and I can see the roses have been well cared for. These things are important!
Gloves for roses
Like the ones I use below, these should be at least 3/4 inch. Whichever ones you choose, make sure the blades cross not meet. These also have a soft grip handle for when you’re pruning lots of roses!
You can get a number of these around. They probably have them at your local garden center. But if you need one fast then here’s a good one for you.
Links to Amazon
Most of the time I tend to buy Miracle Gro Rose Plant Food available on Amazon.
It can often be cheaper from Naturehills. Check availability here.
You will need good, nutrient-rich potting soil like the one I’ve added here.
Pesticide and Insecticide
Roses can be prone to black spot disease and powdery mildew. Bioadvanced has a formula specifically designed to target these issues. Here’s a link to it.
Neem Oil is great for tackling issues like spider mites. Just be careful to follow the instructions as it needs diluting and can burn. Also, be careful which type you buy as some are more organic friendly than others.
If you’re looking to get into irrigation for roses, then here’s the kit I’d recommend.
