The Mesmerizing Rose Garden

by WriterArtist

Mesmerizing rose garden plants are something that I cannot keep my eyes off. Roses symbolize love and are related to the Roman Goddess of love Venus and Greek Goddess Aphrodite.

Lavishly sculpted rose gardens with chiseled petals in aesthetic layers, the rainbow colours are blended in such fusion that the appearance of these flowers are simply mesmerizing. Many a times, I get caught gazing the beauty of these flowers unaware for hours.

Primarily for their looks and more prominently for their scents they were long sought after in the ancient kingdoms especially the Roman elites and royal Mughal empires of East. You will find many famous rose gardens in Kashmir, India dating back from the Moghal period displaying the exotic grandeur and beauty of these exotic species.

Planning My Rose Garden

The weather has become stunning, spring has arrived and with it - the gorgeous blooming roses. Has there ever been such an elegant and picturesque flower such as rose; I don’t think so. No wonder, the magnificent rose is described as the Queen of flowers. Roses have found a special place in lover’s hearts too. It certainly has found a unique place in my heart.

You will find them everywhere from bouquets and gifts to the thrones of aristocrats and the garlands and laurels of honoured. Not been able to express their love, many a Romeo has presented roses to their Juliet. Roses can be cast in garlands, used for wedding and presented as gifts in various occasions. Roses make an elegant bouquet that no other flower can compete. Only thing that is not possible is making a Bonsai of the rose plant as it is too delicate and soft.

Tips for Growing Roses

Caring for Roses

Growing roses requires no additional gardening skills or experience if you already possess some of them. In nutshell, there are five easy steps for caring roses which can be summarized as:

  1. Select the right species of rose for your rose garden. I would recommend the local ones because they can withstand the local weather better.
  2. Plant your rose where it is exposed to plenty of sunshine, it necessarily needs at least four to six hours of sun every day.
  3. Moisturize the soil for roses and water regularly. The soil for roses should not dry and no cracks should be evident.
  4. Prune your roses regularly and correctly to get a flourishing yield.
  5. Without proper fertilizers and nourishments, the rose plant may not yield flowers. Hence fertilizing is a must, organic fertilizer is recommended.

Hurray – if you follow these guidelines your rose garden plants will kick-start with a healthy leap. You can plant different types that will ensure your rose garden full of elegant blooms round the year. There are many exotic species of roses that can bring color and brightness in your garden provided you are ready to invest some time in the garden.
