Don’t Forget About Your Roses in July

Phoenix’s summer months are here, and we’re in for a sizzling ride. June was a record setter, and that was just the prelude to July and August, which are the true scorchers. We can expect daily high temperatures around 106 degrees – and it’s unlikely we will dip below 100 degrees. July 5th is historically the hottest day of the year and we reached 109 degrees (two above the average) on that date. And, It’s been even warmer every day since then. Arizona is known for its hot summers, but this year’s July and August may just take the cake as the hottest yet.

As temperatures rise, it’s important to ensure that your plants are getting the moisture they need. Adequate watering is crucial to mitigate the stress that high temperatures can cause on your rose plants. CLICK ANYWHERE TO READ MORE.
