How do I know if my plant needs fertilizing?
Before you go straight to fertilizing, take a moment to rule out overwatering (damp yellow) or lack of water (crispy or dead). Next look at the foliage for signs of disease or insect damage. Could there have been a drift from a weed killer that might be distorting the foliage? With those things in mind, check for signs that nutrients are lacking. Here’s a helpful guide:
If none of these fit the bill or if you’re not sure, a soil test can help answer questions about missing nutrients. As always, ask your local garden center professional for guidance in selecting the best fertilizer for your soil and plants. That’s what they’re there for!
Should my Easy Elegance® shrub be pruned in the fall?
Actually, Easy Elegance® Roses require very little pruning. If there are damaged canes, it’s a good idea to prune them off now so the cuts have time to heal before winter. Deadheading, snipping off the faded roses, will help encourage your rose to repeat flower. Our planting and care guide has additional tips including ones for winter preparation and overwintering.
How do I deadhead my roses?
Easy Elegance® roses have a smaller maturing size and require very little pruning. With their first year, it will probably be limited to deadheading, snipping off the spent flowers. To deadhead, trim off the stem of the flower you are removing at the flower cluster and be careful not to remove the buds that are coming on. Once that whole cluster of flowers is finished, trim the stem off just above the next set of leaves.
