STEP ONE:

Decide Where to Plant

Your rose bush will need at least 6-8 hours of sun each day, so choose a sunny spot to plant.

 
 

STEP TWO:

Dig a Hole

Dig a hole that is about twice as wide and as deep as the container. Work the soil at the bottom of the hole with your shovel so that it's loose and aerated.

STEP THREE:

Plant your Rose

Remove the Knock Out® Rose from its container. Use your hands to gently loosen the roots at the bottom of the plant. Place plant in the hole ensuring that the base of the plant is level with the soil.

 
 

STEP FOUR:

Fill in Soil

Add soil back to the hole around the plant. Crumble the soil so that it is nice and aerated. At this point you can add in any soil amendments if you wish, such as manure, peat moss, or various other kinds of soil.

STEP FIVE:

Water your Rose

Water your Knock Out® Rose thoroughly around the base of the plant allowing it to soak in and repeating as necessary.

 
 

STEP SIX:

Check in

For the next couple of weeks, check in and water the plant as needed to ensure it stays healthy. Mulch around the plant to help retain moisture and reduce weeds.
