Want to plant roses in your garden? Here's what you need to do.
Roses are one of the most popular and iconic flowers in the world. With their beautiful blooms and sweet fragrance, they are a symbol of love, romance, and beauty. Here is how to plant them.
Select healthy plants. Make sure there is no yellow or diseased foliage and check the undersides of leaves for pests. If packaged or bare-root plants are dry, immerse them in water for a few hours before planting.
Plant in fertile, well-drained soil where roses will receive at least 6 hours of sun.
Follow plant tag directions for proper spacing. Air circulation is important to keeping roses healthy.
Dig a planting hole as deep and twice as wide as the container.
Fill the hole with a mix of native soil, good-quality garden soil, compost, and perlite.
Backfill and water well.
