So many blooms on that roses .. and healthy plants too. What type of soil do you have? Loamy, clay, or sandy? How do you fertilize your roses to achieve so many blooms? thank you.

Thank you for liking my roses and garden!
My soil is loam with clay pockets. For 10 years I was adding aged manure on my roses, unfortunately it is no longer easily available, so now I mostly fertilize with chemical fertilizers like 10-10-10 or 15-15-15 in late fall and early spring. Later on I will spray with 19-9-27 with micro-elements Cu, Fe, Mn,Zn or something organic.
Big part of beautifully flowering roses later in season is that we have drip irrigation.
One more really important thing is rose selection, nowadays I pick shrub and floribunda roses rather than tea ones.
Hope I answered your questions adequately and sorry for grammar and spelling errors.

Thank you for your answer. Your English is very good. My soil is heavy clay ... I will add coarse sand to make it loamy. Local nursery also advise 10-10-10. Thank you for a beautiful garden !!
