Rocks and Roses
I bought my first house & I have a small yard & I would like to plant roses. I dug up a couple small shrubs & a juniper. While battling with the roots I also noticed the soil is loaded with rocks. I've been trying to remove the golf ball size & larger. There are so many as well as the roots that seem to be throughout. I'm doing my best to clean it all out but want to know how roses will do in this rocky soil. I live in the southwest. Lots of heat, lots of sunshine. I want to plant in the fall. How will my roses fair in this rocky soil? Aside from mulch & fertilizer, anything else I need to do? All suggestions are welcome. Boy, gardening is tiresome!
