Growing your As Good As It Gets roses

As Good As It Gets roses planting tips

Planting As Good As It Gets roses requires a bit of preparation to ensure they get off to a strong start. Begin by choosing a location with full sun and well-drained soil. Before planting, remove any weeds or grass and amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure. Dig a hole that is slightly larger than the root ball of the rose plant, and set the plant in the hole so that the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Backfill the hole with soil, gently firming it down around the roots. Water the rose deeply, and add a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

As Good As It Gets rose pruning techniques

Pruning is an important part of caring for As Good As It Gets roses, and can help promote healthy growth and abundant blooms. The best time to prune As Good As It Gets roses is in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Start by removing any dead or diseased wood, cutting back to healthy, green wood. Then, prune back any crossing or rubbing branches, and remove any weak or spindly growth. When pruning, make clean cuts at a 45-degree angle just above a healthy bud. 

For floribunda roses like As Good As It Gets, it's also recommended to remove one-third to one-half of the previous year's growth to encourage strong new growth and blooms. With regular pruning, your As Good As It Gets roses will stay healthy, vigorous, and bloom freely.
