New Rose Gardening Checklist

The most important factor while planting your roses is
to check the pH balance of the soil which states
whether the soil is acidic or alkaline. The soil test
will determine what compounds are to be added to the
soil while preparing the flower bed.

Once the soil texture is ascertained and the soil is
ready, it is time to purchase your rose plant. This
step is crucial and there should be no compromise on
the quality.

Whether you choose from a plant grown in a pot or a
bare root plant which is dormant, the quality should
be the best. It is said that healthy plants which are
dormant give a better bloom than those with long new

Again, though early spring is considered to be the
ideal planting season for the roses, it is better to
check from a well-known local nursery.

A well-cultivated soil makes planting easy and smooth.
The roots are soaked for few minutes and the broken
root-ends need to be pruned. The roots should never be
kept exposed to the air which may end up in drying the
root fibers.

The hole should be approximately one inch in width and
depth enough for the roots to spread out. You should
refill the hole till three-quarter and water the plant

Once the water gets soaked properly, the hole has to
be filled fully and the soil is made firm around the
roots. The planting procedure is same for potted
plants where the pot has to be removed and the
planting continues from spring to fall.
