Roses don’t have to be time consuming. Choosing the right cultivars for Mississippi’s climate can cut down on rose maintenance. MSU Extension/From Extension Publication 2835 “Roses in Mississippi”
If you’re thinking of planting roses, spring is one of the best times.
These beautiful flowers can be time consuming, especially in Mississippi’s climate. But you can grow roses without having to invest a lot of time in managing them. The first step is to choose cultivars that tolerate heat, humidity, and diseases well.
Other important things to consider are the planting location and whether you prefer organic or traditional methods for insect and disease control.
You can find in-depth information on fertilization, pruning, plant spacing, bed preparation, insect and disease control, and which cultivars do well in Mississippi in Extension Publication 2835, “Roses in Mississippi.”
