How do you plant a rose garden?

(These steps will be shortened up.)1.The Materials :a garden bed, rose plants, rose food and a shovel, starting this project on spring and summer is the best time for this project.

Step 1

Spread the garden flat before you start. Dig a hole first as deep as the root ball of the rose plant. The hole should have a stem 2-3 cm long above the root ball.Roses like rose food so be free to add rose food at the bottom of the rose plant. Make sure to plant the roses some space from each other so there is room for them to grow. Packed garden of roses will not bloom, so leave some space for the plants to let them spread all around.

Step 2

Mix some loose soil in with the rose food, release the roots from the root ball and put the rose plant in the hole.Fill the hole with the mixture of loose soil and rose food into the hole with the rose plant. You have to make sure you pack at least 2 cm of loose soil. After filling the hole give the rose water but water carefully water close to the soil.

Step 3

You have to water the rose everyday, give them lots of water at first then afterwards give just some water just to keep it damp. Roses like heat and hot climates, but if it's not sunny it's alright because roses are actually alright with any season. Remember to cut off all the stems of the dead flowers during the Autumn.
