Like we mentioned earlier, caring for these shrubs is a breeze as long as you follow a short list of instructions.
First, you should pick a spot to plant that gets full sun each day. That means somewhere around 6-8 hours of sunlight per day. You'll also want to make sure you have well-drained soil to promote excellent root health.
If you don't happen to have the soil that drains, you can always create a mound 18 inches above ground level and plant there, or try installing a raised bed. That way, not only can you control the drainage, you can also specially create the soil composition.
Once planted, you'll want to water it in well and continue to do so often until the shrub is established, usually, this will take the first growing season. You can help conserve water and protect the roots by adding a layer of mulch around the base of your plant.
It's important to know when and how to prune to keep your rose bushes healthy year after year. It's not too difficult though, simply grab your favorite pair of shears and cut your shrubs back to about 12 inches in the early spring, before new growth gets fully underway.
