Planting Rose Bushes Fresh
For container grown roses place the rootball in the hole making sure the graft union is slightly below the soil line.
Planting rose bushes. Plants with tall spires complement the wide cup shaped flowers of roses while perennials and shrubs with pale green silver or purple leaves accentuate the sumptuous rose blossoms. As we place the rose bush into its planting hole we drape the roots carefully over the mound. Slowly add soils from the wheelbarrow to the planting hole while supporting the rose bush with one hand.
Make the mound high enough so that when you place the rose bush on top of it the knobby graft union is barely below the soil level. For bareroot roses make a mound in the center of the hole using a mixture of the removed soil and bone meal. Plant the bush in the hole so the roots drape over the cone.
One of the best things about a rose is that the bush is easy to plant. Plant the rose. Tamp the soil lightly as the planting hole is filled to support the rose bush.
In the area where the rose or roses are to be planted mix in at least one bucket of well rotted organic matter per square metre forking it into the top 20 30cm 8in 1ft of soil. Old garden roses will need more space while miniature roses can be planted closer. Remove one plant at a time from the soaking water and trim all damaged roots.
Backfill the rest of the hole and repeat with the remaining bushes. When the plant settles the graft union should be fully buried about 1 inch underground. Don t crowd the roses if you plan to plant more than one rose bush.
Water prune and mulch as necessary. As long as you choose a sunny 6 8 hours daily well drained location even a newly planted rose bush will take off and bloom for you year after year. Try planting your roses in a spot with morning sun and afternoon shade.
