Choosing a Location for Roses

The best way to succeed is to plan before you plant. Let’s discuss location: Do you know where you want your new plants to be located? Avoid many future problems by considering all aspects of the planting spot, such as:

  • Sun and good soil
  • Leave space for future planting

NOTE: This is part 3 in a series of 11 articles. For a complete background on how to grow roses, we recommend starting from the beginning.

Sun and Good Soil

Your plant would love a sunny place with well-drained, fertile soil. But it will be quite satisfied with six to eight hours of sunlight. Good drainage is required to keep your plant “happy.” If your soil has high clay content, use our Coco-Fiber Potting Medium or add one-third peat to the soil at planting time. We do not recommend planting in heavy, pure clay soils.

Space for Future Plantings

Once you’ve found out about growing firsthand, you’ll want to expand your home orchard. It’s important to plan so that the future growth areas will be ready when you are.
