Help, I have always grown roses and never had a problem doing so. I will admit I put them in the ground, feed, water and prune them and then they're on their own. I've gardened this way with roses for over 25 years. I love roses/flowers but don't like to garden.

Last year we moved to a new house/yard and I planted 24 rose bushes. One area small of the yard has a drainage problem and just never dries out. The roots of the two roses planted there rotted. Does anyone know of a type rose that grows in ground that never dries out?

I'd really appreciate your help, gardening season will be here soon.

No, but try digging down a bit and adding a layer of river rock. That should help with the drainage.

Thanks for the info. I'll try that.
