Get your roses off to the best possible start by choosing their growing
site carefully and then planting them using the techniques most suitable
for your climate. Bare-root rose plants – those sold without soil – offer
the best value and grow quickly after planting.
Choose the planting site. Roses need at least 6 hours of direct sun each
day, although some afternoon shade is best in hot climates. Plant them
in a spot where air can circulate and dry their leaves soon after a rain,
and give them fertile soil that drains quickly.
