#ProPlantTips for Care:

Hardy modern Shrub Roses prefer to be planted with lots of sunlight and moving airflow. Give them all day sun if you have it, but at least six hours of full sun a day. Their roots won't tolerate standing water. Look for a site with well-drained soil, or create a raised bed for planting.

Order Nature Hills Root Booster to help your lovely plants access micronutrients their whole life. Beneficial ingredients like mycorrhizal fungus create a symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots. Heavy flowering Roses need a moderate amount of water regularly. Use a flowering plant fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer following the label instructions. Lawn fertilizers should not be used near Roses, as they will reduce the blooming. Apply a three-inch layer of mulch to keep the roots cool, but please don't let it directly rest against the stems.

Bag up fallen leaves in late autumn and place them up in your lawn waste. Read about pruning Roses Here, and about winterizing Roses here, and un-wintering Roses in spring in our #ProPlantTips Garden Blog!

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Rose Trees need a protected location and prefer full sun and favor the drying power of the morning sun and flower best in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Choose a location in good, enriched soil that drains well and has good air circulation.

What Is The Best Month to Plant Roses?

You can plant Roses any time if you are able to provide enough consistent moisture and attention. While there is not a specific month that is best, generally because it changes with temperatures, climate and growing zone. However, the easiest times of the year to get Rose bushes established in your landscape are in spring after the last frost date, and in fall about 4-6 weeks before the first frost.

Do Roses Come Back Every Year?

Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
