How To Plant a Knock Out® Rose In Ground
1. Pick a Sunny Place to Plant
Your rose bush will need at least 6-8 hours of sun each day, so choose a sunny spot to plant.
2. Dig a Large Hole
Dig a hole slightly larger than the container. Work the soil at the bottom of the hole with your shovel so that it's loose and aerated.
3. Remove Rose from its Container
Remove the Knock Out® Rose from its container. Use your hands to gently loosen the roots at the bottom of the plant.
4. Plant your Rose in Ground
Place plant in the hole ensuring that the base of the plant is level with the soil.
5. Fill in Soil around Plant
Add soil back to the hole around the plant. Crumble the soil so that it is nice and aerated. If desired, mulch around plant.
6. Water Rose until Established
Water your Knock Out® Rose thoroughly around the base of the plant, allowing it to soak in. Repeat as necessary. For the next couple of weeks, check in and water the plant as needed to ensure it stays healthy.
