Planting, Position & Preparation
Roses require 5-6 hours of full sun per day for best performance. Roses tolerate a wide range of soil types, but your garden bed must be well drained. If your soil is lacking in quality or drainage, mix a premium potting mix or mulch or your own compost into your soil. Dig a hole approx.. 500 x 500 x 300mm deep. Plant your rose halfway up the main trunk, do not cover the graft or the trunk where branches begin. Water in well. If winter rains do not occur, water your rose every two weeks. Do not feed your rose at this time. Feed during early spring with a well-balanced slow release fertiliser.
