Planting Roses
  • Roses can be planted from seed or mature bushes can be purchased at a local gardening center. Planting your roses from seed can be rewarding but very time-consuming.
  • Insects like Japanese Beetles and Aphids can attack rose bushes.
  • Water roses in the morning to mid-day to avoid allowing water to set on leaves and petals when the sun goes down.

Planting Lemon

  • Use a Meyer Lemon tree for indoor use and plant it in evenly moist and well-drained soil. Mist your plant daily and give it a good soak about once a week.
  • A full 12 hours of sunlight is preferred, whether natural southern sun exposure or through indoor lighting.
  • Equip your tree/plant with one Ultomato stake to keep it upright and supported.
