  • Water deeply, slowly & infrequently to develop stronger root systems
  • Mulch between and around roses to reduce evaporation
  • Opt for early morning watering: water droplets on the leaves/blooms overnight make the plant more susceptible to diseases
  • Healthy plants are water-wise plants! Control diseases and feed regularly
