Grow your roses. Choose a sunny spot. Permanent, away from competing trees and shrubs. Don't plant a rose where it died.
Soak roots in a bucket of water for two to 12 hours. Remove damaged or lengthy roots.
Mix two shovelfuls of decomposed manure or compost into the hole's bottom soil. Plant and root it. Shovel yourself. Own-root roses are different from grafted ones. They grow roots without a knobby bud union from cuttings. Plant them one inch deeper.
Drain after adding water. It settles the soil. Water again and fill the hole with earth.
Remove dead or broken wood to grow strong canes. Minimize pruning when planting container-grown roses. Feed after leaves and canes grow.
