Bare Root Roses - Post Planting Care


Apply a layer of organic mulch such as shredded bark or straw around the base of the rose plant. Mulch helps retain soil moisture, suppresses weeds, and regulates soil temperature. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the stem to prevent rotting.


Trim back any damaged or broken stems from your roses. This encourages healthy growth and reduces the risk of disease.


If planting tall or climbing varieties, provide support such as a trellis or stake to prevent the stems from bending or breaking in strong winds.


Monitor the rose regularly for signs of pests or diseases and take appropriate action if necessary. Feed the rose with a balanced fertilizer, like Nurseryland Rose Food 6-18-18, according to the manufacturer's instructions to promote vigorous growth and abundant blooms.
