Apply balanced fertilizer for roses in spring and summer according to package directions. Fertilize only until the end of July. Check soil weekly for moisture. Avoid wetting leaves. Morning water preferred. In northern areas, after leaves have dropped, place rose cone over dormant rose bush. 3-4" mulch around base of plant before ground freezes.
