Soil for roses in the ground
Good afternoon everyone! I had a few questions for you now as I am planning my dream gardens (as usual in winter). I live in a part of the state with nearly pure sand soil, and a pH of 4! I have amended the soil with lime to bring it up to 6.5 pH and have black dirt mixed in as well. Can any of you recommend what you use to make your soil perfect for roses? Here it is a harsh winter, and my roses get mounded to the top with soil and then covered in rose cones. I love English roses and hybrid teas, so I would like to see them flourish! My favorite so far has been over the moon and snowdrift, the latter being 5 feet tall and flowering wonderfully without winter protection! The garden area is about 20 ft x 20 ft if you would like dimensions. This area has not been planted with roses before, and so I want them to have the best possible start! Thanks!
