    March
    1. Buy

    Bare root season (Dec - Feb) is the best time to buy, but you can purchase roses anytime of the year as long as the rose in the container is healthy and has strong canes and they have a good shape to them with no disease. Roses in 5 gallon containers are the best, 2-3 gallon containers mean that the roots have been cut off to fit and even worse are the plastic wrapped roses that have their roses severely chopped. By the end of the year those roses that have set in a nursery for several months under the care of nursery personnel need to be looked at seriously for the good qualities I mentioned. It might be a good idea to ask the nurseries what they fertilize with and how long ago they did this. Most use chemical fertilizers and just throw some in the pot. So the longer a rose sets in a nursery, it could be possible that the care may not be as good as we would like, but you can tell by the quality of the rose.
    2. Fertilize

    Give Roses humus or humic acid (found in compost of some organic products - read label). Fertilize with organic fertilizer (Dr. Earth), Biosol, and if not done in January, John & Bob\'s Soil Optimizer. Make alfalfa tea (or some other teas or liquid fertilizer) when the plants have 4-6 inches of new growth.
    3. Water

    Continue regular watering if not enough rain to sustain.
    4. Mulch

    Mulch when soil warms up
    5. Pest/Disease Inspection

    Walk garden daily to check for pests and/or fungal disease.
