== Summer Treatment of Roses
Keep the soil
continually cultivated to retain as much moisture as possible; the stirring need not be deep,. otherwise roots are injured. A mulch of lawn clippings is beneficial.
Each time a new supply is ready the other will have been dried and worked into the soil. After every rain the soil should be loosened. A good
syringing of water every day from the start of the season will go a long way toward keeping the insects off. The time for syringing is morning or evening.
At midday it is rather injurious to the foliage. All through the Summer watch for suckers; they usually have more leaflets five to seven, the garden
varieties having but three to five. They should not be broken off but cut out down to the roots of the [[roses]].
