Soil

If you’re interested in growing roses, it’s important to know how to properly prepare their soil. This is one of the most important steps in growing roses because the soil will help roses thrive by providing them with nutrients and moisture. If you’re not sure what kind of soil to use, there are four general types: loam, peat moss, vermiculite and sand.

Loam: This type of soil is made up of mostly clay, silt and sand mixed together. It has a high water retention capacity and can be difficult to mix as it tends to clump together.

Peat Moss: Peat moss is a great option for potting soils because it provides high nutrient content while having low amounts of organic matter. It’s heavy and holds water well so it makes a great medium for roses that like lots of water or don’t like wet feet (like Rosa banksiae ‘Lutea’).

Vermiculite: Vermiculite is a natural mineral that forms in volcanic rock deposits that helps retain water, nutrients and air. However, this type of soil can be difficult to work with as it will crumble easily when handled or when watered or planted.

Watering

Many roses are marketed as hardy plants, but this one is not. Rosa banksiae ‘Lutea’ requires a great deal of direct sunlight and will thrive in either potting soil or compost. It should be watered every 3-4 days during the spring and summer months, making sure to keep the soil moist at all times.

Rose plants don’t like to be overwatered, so it’s important to remember that they should be watered deeply–but not dripping wet! Keep an eye on your plant’s leaves to determine when it needs water. If you notice any browning or curling along the leaf edges, then the plant is too wet and should be watered again
