Gardening Interview Questions and Answers

 

What kind of care do English Roses need?

The care of English Roses is similar to that of Modern Roses with some




exceptions.






Hardiness: Most English Roses can be grown in Zone 5 or warmer. 'Constance




Spry', 'Mary Rose', 'Charles Rennie Mackintosh' are some of the hardiest




English Roses. 'Graham Thomas' and other yellow varieties may need some




winter protection in cold climates.






Disease: Some varieties of English Roses seem to be rather resistant to




blackspot and other diseases. However, this depends greatly on the




particular variety and climate. In particular, many of the red English Roses




have been rather susceptible to blackspot and other diseases and have been




weak growers.






Planting: While English Roses can be grown as individual plants, group




plantings of two or three plants of one variety planted closely together are




often recommended if there is room in the garden. A group planting will




produce a fuller looking growth and more flowers in an area than a single




planting. An odd number of rose bushes planted in a particular location




usually looks more natural than an even number of bushes.
