The Beautiful Rose Garden in Ooty

Making a rose garden is in one of my list to do.As a gardener over many years I have learnt that roses are the king of flowers and they are fragrant and available in many colours and shades. I have a beautiful pink and white shading rose flower plant. There are at least a dozen of rose plants in my garden but they all require special care for blooming. A visist to the garden in ooty has given the idea that roses can be grown in huge sizes, the size of six to seven inches, and what a beautiful view! they sure do get your attention, and definately the rose flower commands attention and respect, no doubt it is the king of flowers.

 Rose climbers can be directed over trellises to get a great view of entrance or dividers in the graden. Sections can be made by these roses or even walls garden can be done by directing the rose climber over the metal trellis. What a view it gives when the shade over your head is covered by roses!

White Rose Bush
Rememebring my white rose bush, it gives more flowers than it has leaves. Even I have to get a trellis for this to give it direction and support for good growth. Making a rose garden will give a great view and also a fragrant one!
Tip for Rose Garden: Keep feeding regularly to encourage blooms otherwise they look very unattractive with their thorns. Take care while planting, your hands, eyes, face etc as they have sharp thorns and a prick can sometimes be very harmful. Wear thick gloves.
Most important keep the rose bushes below eye level and near so that you can enjoy the fragrance, and also not in direct sunlight as the flowers fade away quickly and also the fragrance is lost in the direct heat of the sun.
