Rose Planting Hints and Tips

Planting Instructions

If unable to plant until the weekend leave roses in the box in a place out of the sun or heel into the garden. Keep roots wet.

Keep plants moist before and after planting.

Plant in holes 20-30cm deep, rose should be planted so the dirt after watering is sitting just below the bud union [Where the rose comes out of the root stem] . Fill in, firm well and water.

Rose fertilizer can be applied to the surface after growth starts in the spring.

Do not prune your new roses until the following winter, if you prune your new roses in the first 3 months after planting this will void a replacement if it dies.

SPACING: Bush and Standard roses minimum distance in all directions 1m apart. Climbers, 2 to 4m apart depending on their vigour.
