Prepare the Soil

Planting Bare-Root Roses
1. Soak bare-root rose plants overnight in a bucket of tepid water before planting.

2. Dig a hole for plant, at least 14 to 18 inches deep. Cut up banana peels and place them in the hole for added potassium.

3. Blend compost, manure, Epsom salts, and, if desired, greensand in a wheelbarrow. Amend your soil with several shovelfuls of this mixture (or any other commercial rose soil mix).
