Step 1: Pick a Sunny Place to Plant Your rose bush will need at least 6 hours of sun each day, so choose a sunny spot to plant.
Step 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 is loose and aerated.
Step 3: Remove Rose from its Container Remove the Drift® Rose from its container. Use your hands to gently loosen the roots at the bottom of the plant.
Step 4: Plant your Rose in Ground Place the plant in the hole, ensuring that the base of the plant is level with the soil.
Step 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 the plant.
Step 6: Water Rose until Established Water your Drift® 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.
