    First thing you need to think of is to plant the rose bush in good soil, and provide a location with good sun light, and ample air circulation.
    Secondly the right soil mix is important.
    mix one-third good quality commercial potting soil, one-third hearty garden compost and one-third composted mushroom or steer manure. It is beneficial to the rose to add one cup of bonemeal to the soil. I also suggest adding 1 cup of fishmeal, and a cup bloodmeal. This soil combination, will assure you roses that will produce many hearty blooms over the growing season.
