Mom's Red Rose Gift
Watering: Water every 4-5 days increase as needed. Sun: Full Sun Pruning: You can prune your rose after growth breaks in early to mid-spring.
When planting your rose, dig a hole wide enough and deep enough for the root ball. Best grown in rich, well-drained soil. Added organic matter is suggested. Place rose into the hole and gently break apart the sides of the root ball. Make sure the top of the root ball is leveled with the surrounding soil. Fill hole with soil and organic matter tapping firmly and watering thoroughly.
Before the winter months, apply a thicker layer of bark mulch that will act as a perspective layer. You can also cover your rose with a thin sheet over night when temperatures drop.
Potting & Container
When potting or transplanting a rose, check the moisture of the potting mix in the container and, if dry, water thoroughly. Use a container of 3 gallon or larger for your rose bush. Add organic matter for best results. Roses may be moved in early spring when dormant.
