You must water the tea rose bush at least one a week mostly in the morning. In hot days, the plant requires more often watering. Once new blossoms stop appearing, you should apply some bone meal and rose food to the base of the plant.


Early spring is the best time of the year in which to prune a tea rose bush. Pruning involves removing the dead wood and growth from the bush, thus making more room for blooms. Bone meal and rose food should be reapplied to the soil around the base of the plant.
