New Plantings

Bare Root Plants:

Dig a hole about 12” across and 18” deep. Add peat moss and 3 cups of Rose-tone to the soil removed and mix thoroughly. Use this mixture to partially refill hole. Make a cone of soil to place plant on. Spread roots evenly. Planting depth should be such that the graft knuckle is just below ground level.

Add 4 – 5 inches of soil and firm around roots. Fill hole to within 2 to 3 inches of top, fill with water and let it soak in. Finish filling hole.

Potted Plants:

Some pre-packaged roses should be planted in their original container. Follow instructions on container to determine if the plant should be removed or planted with the container.

Follow directions for “Bare Root Plants” for general planting procedures and hole size. Instead of making a cone to place the roots on, fill the hole with enough soil so that when the container is placed in it its soil level is the same as the surrounding area. Place plant in hole and refill as outlined above.

Established Plants

Feed monthly from beginning of season to middle of September. Keep plants mulched and watered.

Individual Plants:

Apply approximately 1-1/4 cup of Rose-tone around each plant and scratch into the top inch of soil.

Rose Beds:

Spread 6 lbs. of Rose-tone per 100 square feet of bed area and scratch into the top inch of soil.
