    direct sunlight and roses

    I am new to this forum and new to roses.  I have wanted a rose garden for a long time now and finally going to put one in.  The question that I have is how much is too much sunlight.  The spot I would like to plant them gets several hours of direct morning sun but also gets afternoon sun.  Is shade required for roses.  I live in SW Ohio.  The spot I chose also has great air circulation because there are no trees or bushes to hamper the circulation..  Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks Beth

     Hi Beth,

    Direct sun - it is the best for roses, but

    please avoid to plant roses near a wall.(there it is to dry)

     you must water your roses 2 a day ; also because of windy weather; I cant say something about the climate in Ohio, but in Germany it is nearly the same: rose need sun, water, well prepared soil(every year!) fertiliser and love

     I have 108 roses in my garden, it is great in june to smell them.

    But it is also an expensive hobby. I only buy roses of best quality.Think about 3 or 4 roses of the same kind per qm. It is great to watch them  every time. 

    good luck

    Ute from Germany

     Roses grow at its best if they get proper sunlight and water. For roses to be healthy, at least  5 to 6 hours of sunlight is necessary. For roses, a small type of shade is enough. It is required to protect the roses from heavy rain and air storms.
