How to Plant Roses
Stop and smell the roses! Roses are one of the most beautiful and fragrant flowers you can have in your garden. They come in many shapes and sizes and some need more care than others, so be sure to select the best varieties for your needs. Roses prefer to be planted in an area that gets 6-8 hours of sunlight and will grow well both in the ground or in a pot - E.B. Stone Rose Grow soil is designed for either planting application.
Items you’ll Need:
5-7gallon pot with drain holes (if growing in a pot/container)
E.B. Stone Organics Rose & Flower Planting Mix
E.B. Stone Organic Sure Start Fertilizer
E.B. Stone Organic Rose & Flower Food
Step 1: Fill your pot with 2/3 of E.B. Stone Organics Rose & Flower Planting Mix
Step 2: Gently lift your rose out of the grower pots and massage the roots
Step 3: Place the rose in the pot and sprinkle E.B. Stone Organic Sure Start Fertilizer on the roots to help reduce transplant shock, and make sure that the crown is slightly above the surface of the soil
Step 4: Fill the remainder of the pot with soil and gently press the soil around the plant and water thoroughly
INCREASE NEW CANE GROWTH FOR ROSES
Use 1/2 cup of E.B. Stone Alfalfa Meal in early Spring after pruning, to increase new cane growth for roses.
IF GROWING IN THE GROUND…
We recommend mixing 50% Rose Grow Mix to 50% native soil when planting. Space Roses 3’ apart when and be sure not to bury the crown.
Note: *Be sure to feed with E.B. Stone Organic Rose & Flower Food and water regularly throughout the growing season.
