A guide how to plant roses to gain thriving results
Let us assume that you already choose which rose to plant, you know the best location in your garden and you are ready to take-off for the most stunning rose garden your neighborhood ever have seen.
Your mail-order package just arrived and you are eager to grab the shovel and dig the plant hole instantly.
Great, I am always excited too, when it comes to planting a newly arrived rose-delivery.
However, you do not have to hurry, because before planting, freshly arrived roses need a special treatment. Depending on what type of rose you bought, the planting procedure varies a little bit.
As I have described the planting of bare root roses on a different page, this article will cover the other three possibilities how to plant roses.
Ideally, plant the rose as soon as you get it.
Although container roses nowadays can be planted the whole year, I would recommend reading my article about when to plant roses.
This is the newest invention from the big rose breeders and perhaps the one that will help beginners in the rose growing scenery to an easy-rose start off.
The packages come with putrescible insets, which will dissolve in the soil.
All you have to do is to put the plant together with the inset in a water bath for few minutes. This will accelerate the dissolving process of the insets in the ground.
As every rose, plant roses with special packages in an about 2 feet wide and 2 feet deep planting hole, with the graft union situated slightly below the soil level.
Proceed as I explained it before with potted roses.
These roses sometimes can be nice. Although they are bulk stock and you mostly do not know what you get, the results can be satisfying. The clue is to check the plants carefully when you buy them.
The planting process for the packaged roses will be the same as in my guide about planting bare root roses.
