Plant Oso Easy® Landscaping Roses in a place with plenty of full sun and air circulation. They need at least six hours of direct light a day for strong stems and the best flower power. Provide a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Maximize the performance with Nature Hills Root Booster during planting, then mulch to a depth of 3-4 inches, pulling it back away from the stems. Container-grown plants need well-drained soil and a careful schedule of water. Try drip irrigation systems to make things very easy on yourself. Rake and bag all fallen foliage in late fall. In early spring and mid-summer, apply a slow-release fertilizer for flowering plants.
Prune in early spring down to eight inches to maintain plenty of dense branching. Want more info about pruning Roses, winterizing Roses, and un-wintering Roses in spring? Check out Nature Hills #ProPlantTips Garden Blog! Honey Bun does not need pruning, spraying, or deadheading!

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