How much water do my rose bushes need?
Roses are very fond of water and require one to two inches of it every week. In periods of hot, dry temperatures, even more may be needed depending on the size of the bushes as well as whether or not they are appropriately mulched. In spite of their need for an abundance of water, roses hate standing in water so it is important that the gardener provide adequate drainage for the rose bed. Remember soggy roses are sick roses.
