Roses Made Easy
Tips for starting shrub roses
Buy a large plant. Begin with the largest bush you can find. Remember, it takes three years for the plant to reach maturity.
Plant in full sun if possible. Roses grow best in full sun, but some, like the Knock Out series, tolerate partial shade. Plant deeply; the point where the plant starts branching should be 1 to 2 inches below ground to add more winter protection.
