optimist22's New Dawn Care Instructions

If you would like to sow this plant directly, try 0.25 inches (0.64 cm) deep with a guideline distance of 3.96 feet (1.22 metres).

Rose normally grows to a mature height of 2.00 metres (that's 6.50 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (8b) is within the ideal range for Rose. The recommended range is between Zone 5 and 9.

Try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 4.5 and 8.0 as Rose likes to be in acidic to alkaline soil.

Common Rose problems include Rose Slug, Bristly Rose Slug, Aphids, Powdery Mildew, and Blackspot, so keep a close eye out for any developing symptoms.
