When you go to put the bush into the ground, you need to make sure that you dig a whole deep enough into the ground so that the roots do not bend when you place them in the whole.
After putting the bush into the whole, do not just put the dirt back in; add some fertilizer to the pile, and mix it in real good, then start to put the dirt back. Just make sure that you pack the dirt around the roots so they have lots to grab on to.
Tip #3 – How much sun:
How much sun should your roses get? This all depends on the type of bush you bought. Some roses will grow perfectly well in the shade, however, you need to buy this kind special, otherwise you will get the standard rose.
