New to planting Knock Out Roses? Follow these steps:
Step 1: Decide Where to Plant
Your rose bush will need at least 6-8 hours of sun each day, so choose a sunny spot to plant.
Step 2: Dig Hole
Dig a hole that is about twice as wide and as deep as the container. Work the soil at the bottom of the hole with your shovel so that it loose and aerated.
Step 3: Plant
Remove the Knock Out® Rose from its container. Use your hands to gently loosen the roots at the bottom of the plant. Place plant in the hole ensuring that the base of the plant is level with the soil.
Step 4: Fill In
Add soil back to the hole around the plant. Crumble the soil so that it is nice and aerated. At this point, you can add in any soil amendments if you wish, such as manure, peat moss, or various other kinds of soil.
Step 5: Water Rose Bush
Water your Knock Out® Rose thoroughly around the base of the plant allowing it to soak in and repeating as necessary.
Step 6: Check-In
For the next couple of weeks, check in and water plant as needed to ensure it stays healthy. Mulch around the plant to help retain moisture and reduce weeds.
