Should I plant my new Gruss an Teplitz in a west-facing L-shaped niche where it can grow as a climber? Or should I look for a different rose to fill that spot? (One source tells me the rose will grow as high as 12 feet--two others inform me only about six. If it will grow only six feet, then I prefer to reserve that spot for a true climber or pillar rose.) I live 30 miles northeast of San Francisco where June weather usually reaches 95 to 100 degrees F for about two weeks.

Hi, We live in Burbank Ca, and I would like to grow these roses. What is the best time to plant a rose bush like this one? What location does it grow best in? Full Sun, Partial Sun? We have a west facing area that I would like to grow it in?

I recently planted a rose bush, that looked great for a few days, but, now it's leaves are all brown at the bottom like it's dying. I have watered it every eve. to let it get established. Have I watered too much? It gets plenty of sun. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks

The simplest way to know whether the plant is well-watered is with your fingers. Dig a small hole with a trowel about 4 inches away from the root ball. Go down into the soil at least 6 inches. Is it wet? Is it dry? It takes a little practice to water thoroughly but not excessively. It's usually hard for an experienced gardener to drown a rose. The next question is whether you have damaged the leaves with fertilizer. It is quite easy to over-fertilize a rose. Many of us have made the mistake of fertilizing a plant that isn't thriving. Don't do it! Fertilizer is far from a cure-all and can cause serious, sometimes fatal, damage to a stressed plant.

If none of this helps, let us know your general location (state, country), how you received the plant (size of pot), and, if possible, a photo of the plant.

Roses like a nice garden loam. A soil which will drain well.
