One such plant is roses and this two part article will explain how to grow amazing roses.


If you are growing roses in pots or containers, it is best to plant them in the spring. Potted roses can be planted at any time during the growing season, but are best planted in early spring or fall, a month before the first hard frost. They can also be purchased from local nurseries during the growing season, allowing you to plant them in ideal climate conditions.


The plant ensures that the rose has enough time to strengthen its root system before winter hits. This gives the roots enough time to burrow into the soil before the plant goes into hibernation. Fall planting can be a little tricky because the roots need time to take root and really go deep into the ground before the pink plants go dormant in winter. It's best to plant roses in the fall or spring to give them time to stretch and develop new roots before they bloom.


The best time to plant roses is in the spring, after the last frost, or in the fall, at least six weeks before the first average frost in your area. Although you can buy roses all year round from many nurseries, the best time to plant them in the ground is in autumn or spring in most growing regions. Whether you're getting bare-rooted roses from a catalog in the mail in the spring, or buying roses in containers during the growing season, there are a few simple planting guidelines.


You can plant bare-root roses any time between October and the end of March, but planting them in the fall will help them grow faster when the soil is still warm and usually moist in summer. Unlike potted roses, however, bare-root plants require soaking their roots in water overnight before submerging them in soil, and need to keep their roots moist for the first few months after planting. Growing bare-root roses while dormant is cheaper than growing container-grown roses because growers don't need to water and feed the plants while dormant, and they are lighter and take up less space to transport.


You can buy roses already planted in the ground, or as dormant plants with a bare root system. Patio roses pair well with other potted plants, while spray roses can be grown in mixed ornamental borders with nepeta, lavender, and other perennial herbs. While all climbing roses can be grown in pots, low shrub varieties or garden roses are ideal.
