How to Grow Hybrid Tea Roses

  • Location: Choose a sunny spot with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. Good air circulation helps prevent disease.
  • Soil: Well-drained, loamy soil enriched with organic matter is ideal.
  • Spacing: Plant roses 2-3 feet apart to ensure proper air circulation.
  • Watering: Water deeply at the base of the plant, avoiding the foliage to reduce the risk of disease. Roses typically need about 1 inch of water per week.
  • Fertilizing: Use a balanced fertilizer formulated for roses, applying it in early spring and then every 6 weeks throughout the growing season.
  • Pruning: Prune in early spring before new growth begins. Remove dead or diseased wood and shape the plant to encourage healthy growth.
