How to plant a rose bush

Roses are the most common flowers used in gardens. You can too enhance the look of your garden by planting some roses. The best time to do this is in the spring, after the last frost.

There are a few tips you can follow to do everything alright.

Some of the tools and materials that you will need are:

  • Rose bush
  • Shovel or spade
  • Peat moss or compost material
  • Sand (if necessary)
  • Hand pruner
  • Top soil
  • Water
  • Pruning paint
  • Loose soil

Making plans

First of all you will need to choose a spot for the roses where the plant can enjoy 6 hours of sunlight per day. Then, dig a hole, 15 inches larger in diameter than the rose roots.

Now it’s the time to add some compost to the dirt you have dug out. This will make the soil richer.


Now you will need to examine the plant, especially the roots. If you see some that are dying, you should prune them.


Now make a cone of earth before placing the plant in the hole. Place the plant over this cone and spread the roots.

Make sure the rose is set at the proper depth. It should have the shoots just a little over the ground level.

Next, add the remaining soil over the roots. Pack the soil around the plant. Water it two times. Wait for the soil to get soaked.
