Growing White Roses

Growing white roses can be a rewarding experience, especially if you understand the basic care they need:

  • Location: Choose a spot that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. Roses thrive in sunny locations.
  • Soil: Roses prefer well-drained soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 6.5. Amending the soil with organic matter like compost can help improve its quality.
