There are 3 mistakes people make when planting rose bushes, that you should try to avoid; digging the wrong size hole; buying the wrong stage of bush; and giving the rose bush the wrong kind of dirt. These mistakes can and will cause your rose bushes to fail.
When going to plant your rose bushes, you had best try to avoid the following mistakes:
They don’t dig the right size hole:
Most people will not dig the hole deep enough, and some of the roots will be exposes, or the roots will be crushed down into the dirt.
This is bad, and your bush will most likely die, and you will have wasted all of your time.
What you want to do is make sure the hole is deep enough to cover the roots, so that they lay uncrushed on top of the dirt, this way, the stems on your plant will start right when the grown covers the rest.
Wrong age of the bush:
They think if they buy the buds now, they will have roses right away.
This is the furthest from the truth, if you want to claim you raised your roses from a bud, then do this, just do not expect good roses for at least 2 years.
So, the best way to start is to have a rose bush that is 2 – 3 years old, which means you will get your roses the first year your plant them, and not have to wait all that time.
Wrong kind of dirt:
Most people will just fill the hole back up covering the roots, and think the bush is going to be ok.
However, this dirt does not have the added vitamins and minerals that fertilized dirt is going to have.
This means take the mound of dirt you created with your hole digging, and mix it up with some good fertilizer. This will give the rose bushes everything it needs to grow into a health bush that will give you lots of roses for years to come.
Now you know when planting rose bushes there are 3 mistakes that you need to avoid. You need to buy the right age of rose bush, plant the rose bush in the right kind of dirt, and make sure you dig the hole deep enough to cover the roots perfectly, along with a mixture of fertilizer as well.
