Our roses are shipped on Mondays via Federal Express ground based on the ship date selected. The potted 1 gal. roses are watered and placed in plastic bags before being carefully packaged in shipping boxes, unless specified as bare root. If bare root, then the roses are placed in moisture filled plastic bags, placed in shipping boxes and shipped directly to you. The majority of our customers recieve their shipments within 3-5 days of shipping, however, there may be delays by the carrier that would cause your shipment to be recieved beyond that date.
Our roses are own-root unless specified in the description as being a grafted rose.
Generally, roses need at least 6-8 hours of sunlight every day.
Water the newly planted roses well. Afterwards, water deeply at least once per week. Roses like adequate moisture, but they do not like "wet feet". It is best to water roses near the drip line at soil level. Try to keep water off the foliage. If you must water on the foliage, do it early in the morning so the sun can dry the leaves. Once your roses are established, water them at least once per week, (during the summer heat, twice per week). This will encourage deeper root systems than light, frequent watering.
All of our potted roses come pre-fertilized with oscmocote. We recommend fertilizing in the Spring and Fall with Oscmocote 17-5-11.
We guarantee our roses to be strong, healthy, and true to variety and guarantee them for 90 days if appropriately cared for. If your roseplants do not survive the 90 day time period, or at ANY time you have a question or a problem pertaining to your rose, Please notify us immediately. We will offer a one time replacement, or issue a credit or a refund (less the shipping charges) of the rose(s) only. We may ask you to provide pictures to help solve any issues that may occur. We suggest you choose roses that are appropriate for your growing zone. Please protect your roses from abnormal weather conditions. If you need assistance, please contact us immediately. We will not be responsible for neglect or conditions beyond our control. All roses need to be planted in the ground as soon as possible after you recieve them. We cannot control the handling of the rose once it leaves our nursery. We instruct the shipping company on the proper handling of the boxes, but at times there may be some damage. Please call immediately if there is. Do NOT throw away boxing until you have contacted us. We may request pictures of boxes to be sent to us. We may request a return shipment of the rose for evaluation.
Our 1 gal. potted roses are on AVERAGE 6-12" tall depending on the time of year and if they have recently been trimmed.
We do not guarntee our roses to have leaf, bud, or bloom at time of shipping. If planting instructions are followed and industry standards have been followed you should have bud and bloom the first year.
Soil amendment is a key ingredient for a successful rose garden. Organic matter improves the quality of the soil and helps the roses to absorb the essential elements and micro-nutrients, which are present in the soil. It is a good idea to have a soil test done to establish the conditions of your beds. In Texas, your local Agriculture Extension Office can assist you with how to collect soil samples and the procedure for having the test performed. Good drainage is also essential to rose health. If you have clay or slow draining soil, a product such as expanded shale should be added to help drainage.
When planting, dig the hole twice as wide and twice as deep as the container. Plant roses the same depth in the soil as they were in the container, except in Northern climates where planting roses below existing soil is recommended for winter protection. Mix the soil you remove from the planting hole 50/50 with well-aged organic matter (i.e. humus, cotton burr compost) and fill the hole back in with the mixture.
Mulch: Top-dress the soil with any remaining compost and mulch well. Three inches of mulch (i.e. cypress, cedar, pine bark, pine straw) is recommended. This will allow for good drainage, aid in water conservation, and help keep weeds out.
It may be necessary to spray your roses with a fungicide to control some diseases (i.e. black spot, powdery mildew) that roses sometimes get. While some roses are much hardier than others, they are not completely immune to pests. Systemic fungicides are absorbed through the leaves and cannot be washed off. As a result, systemic fungicides are more effective for lasting control. Before using any sprays or chemicals, read and follow all label directions.
The main insect pests of roses are aphids and thrips. Aphids gather on the new foliage and the tips of the flower buds. Thrips hide deep within the center of the bloom petals. When insects first appear, organic solutions often resolve the problem. If necessary, stronger insecticides are available. Before using any insecticides, remember to read and follow all label directions as required.
Spider mites infest the undersides of the leaves. They are not easily seen, but can be identified by the discoloring damage (speckling) done to the leaves and the light, silky webbing on infested plants. The best organic treatment is to pressure wash with water in the morning for three consecutive days. Insecticidal oils or soaps are also effective without harming most beneficial insects. For chemical control, use a product labeled for spider mite control. Read the label and follow directions before any chemical application.
