What type of soil is best for my roses?
Roses grow best in soil with a ph of 6.0 to 6.5 (or slightly acid). Now out West, we don't have too many problems with acidic soils, but from parts of the Midwest to the East Coast this is a problem.
When should I plant a bare root rose?
Bareroot roses are only available from late Fall through the Winter months... this time frame can be extended with the use of cold storage, but the general rule of thumb is to plant after the last hard frost in your area. If you need help determining this date, you can check with your local Rose Society or your local garden center. Planting late in the spring may make your new roses susceptible to drying out.
