What is Miracle-Grow?
Miracle-Grow® is an all purpose plant food that has been specifically designed to deliver essential nutrients to flowers, vegetables, trees, and shrubs.

Benefits of Using Miracle-Grow for Roses
Roses are an incredibly popular garden flower that require the right amount of attention to thrive in both the garden and containers. Using Miracle-Grow®, whether in soil or potting mix, gives roses the nutrition they need to become strong and healthy plants that produce vibrant blooms season after season.
This product also helps to aerate soil by creating space between soil particles which allows air and water to reach rose roots more easily for better overall growth and development of the plant.
Preparing the Garden Soil for Planting
Before planting roses in your garden, it is important to ensure that your soil is prepared properly so that it can provide adequate nutrition to your roses throughout their life cycle without requiring additional fertilizers or amendments after planting them into their permanent location in the garden bed or container.
To do this, mix equal parts of Miracle-Grow® Garden Soil for Roses (or Miracle-Grow® Garden Soil for Flowers) with the soil removed from the planting hole before you put your roses into it – this will help ensure that they receive ample nutrition while establishing new roots in your garden bed or container .
Container Gardening with Miracle-Grow Potting Mix
If you are planting roses in a container rather than directly into the ground in your garden bed, use Miracle-Grow® Potting Mix instead of ordinary potting soil or topsoil as it contains all of the essential nutrients needed to help flowers grow strong roots while providing them with ample nutrition throughout their life cycle without requiring additional fertilizers or amendments after they have been planted into their permanent home in the container.
Plus, because it has been specially formulated for flowers such as roses, you can be sure that you are giving your plants everything they need to thrive without worry!
Additional Tips for Successful Rose Planting and Care
Once you have planted your roses into either their permanent location in a garden bed or container using either Miracle-Grow® Garden Soil for Roses (or Flowers) mixed with ordinary soil from the planting hole or Miracle-Grow® Potting Mix if planting into a container – here are some additional tips to help ensure successful growth:
- Regular Watering: Roses require regular watering throughout their life cycle – about 1” per week during spring/summer months – however be sure not to overwater them as this can lead to root rot.
- Fertilization: Using a slow release fertilizer such as those specifically designed for roses is an excellent way to provide ongoing nutrition without having to continually reapply fertilizer every few weeks.
- Pruning & Deadheading: Pruning and deadheading helps keep rose bushes looking neat while encouraging new growth on plants by removing old woody stems.
- Controlling Pests & Diseases: Monitor your rose bushes regularly for signs of pests & diseases such as aphids & blackspot which can quickly spread if left untreated.
