New rose garden
Less than a month ago, I planted a new rose garden. The soil is clay but not the rock hard type. We dug about 20 inch holes and planted the potted roses with a soil mix that was recommended by my nursery.
It has been 80+ to 90+ since they were planted. At first, when it was 80ish, I watered them every other day. Now that it is so much hotter, they are wilting if I don't water them liberally every day. My new babies are: Pristine, Oregold, Gemini, First Prize, Olympiad, and Brandy. They are already producing GORGEOUS flowers. But is this watering normal?
The ground (mulch covered) puddles but drains very quickly.
My gardner is going to put each bush on a drip, but how much water a day or week will they need? Are they just so thirsty because they're new or is it the heat?
