Fall Care

After the end of August, continue watering but stop all
fertilization. The plant needs a gradual entrance into dormancy –
any new growth might be killed by early frost. This would be an
added stress for even a healthy plant going into winter.

One of the most important jobs in the rose garden is to
get a soil test, and fall is a great time to do it. Any corrections
that need to be made will have all winter to work.
