 Consulting Rosarian Tips for October:
Deep water prior to predicted hard freezes to lessen damage to roots which could occur in dry soil.  Remove any blooms just below the flower.  Do not fertilize your roses.  Take time to plan and prepare new roses beds.  Spade or rototill new beds deeply, mixing in organic materials and let lay over the dormant season.

For rose questions, contact a Consulting Rosarian in your area.
