Of course there are some basic cultivation requirements if you are to have bushes to be proud of, and some tending is going to be necessary. I personally think roses are relatively easy to grow if you follow three very basic rules:
1. Buy quality bushes, grown locally.
2. Plant for six hours of good light in well drained soil away from strong winds.
3. Feed a little and water a lot!
Of course you could also prune, fertilize, deadhead, spray etc etc etc., but the three basics hold true and many a beautiful rose bush has been long lived because these basics have been followed.
" Every time one of those new red shoots appear I cut it off!" Needless to say, sometimes a lack of human attention is the best!
At the other extreme, the early Romans had developed very skilled Rosarians. They could cultivate roses in winter and bloom in opposite seasons, by growing them in hothouses in which warm water was circulated. They had, in fact, developed twelve varieties of roses for cultivation at this early period in history. They knew how to select and plant, fertilize and prune.
