Flower Garden – Part I – Rose

It is the easiest plant to grow. I always suggest to start with the Rose because you know.. A Rose is a Rose is a Rose is a Rose!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

Rose is a sturdy plant and does not attract any disease or pest easily.

It is also very strong given that if you forget to water for a day or so, it won’t dry up.

It blooms in all seasons.

Is available in many colors.

Makes it the best plant to start with.

Now the main problem anybody would face with Rose is that it doesn’t bloom after a while. Once, you have bought the plant, keep adding Organic compost every 15 days initially for 3 months. Then monthly for next 3 months. And then just once in everyΒ  45-60 days.
