Floribunda Planting Guide
Roses like full sun -- at least six hours a day -- and fast-draining soil; before planting, amend soil in your planting hole with compost (planting hole should be about two times the diameter of the root ball). Soak roots in a bucket of water for up to 24 hours before planting to replenish any lost moisture. In all climates, bare-root roses should be planted as soon as possible. If you must wait more than two days, wrap roots in water-soaked newspaper and set the root ball in an unheated, dark place; this trick will keep the root ball ready for up to two weeks.
