Rose Watering

Make every drop count

We want to help you get every drop of water exactly where it needs to be, deep into the root zone of the plants in your garden. For example, roses need an inch of water per week during the growing season, whether it comes from rain, irrigation or a combination of the two. Plus, the soil should be moist, not soggy. Rather than light (surface), frequent waterings, roses should be watered deeply and less often. This not only encourages deep root penetration and helps your roses endure dry periods in the future, it also helps to prevent disease caused by overhead watering. And to help you with your watering tasks, we have the rose watering systems that make watering easier and more efficient, saving you time and money.

We mentioned overhead watering because when watering roses, you want to keep the foliage dry. Roses are susceptible to fungus disease like black spot. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” as the old gardener saying goes. If you can water in a way that puts the water where it is needed in the soil and keeps it off the foliage, you will help combat disease. 

At Jackson & Perkins, we have several tools to make this possible. Whether you purchase a wand attachment for your hose or you use one of our slow rose irrigation systems, the result is the same. With these rose watering systems, the water goes exactly where it is needed, and your plant stays dry. We also carry a great timer that attaches directly to your hose. It will automatically turn the water on and off at prescribed times, saving you time and money.
