How to Apply Your Rose-Tone
Bare Root Roses:
Dig a hole about 12” across and 18” deep. Add peat moss and 3 cups of Rose-tone to the soil removed and mix thoroughly. Use this mixture to partially refill the hole. Make a cone of soil to place the plant on. Spread the roots evenly. Planting depth should be such that the graft knuckle is just below ground level. Add 4 to 5 inches of soil and firm around roots. Fill the hole to within 2 to 3 inches of the top, fill with water and let it soak in. Finish filling hole.
Some pre-packaged roses should be planted in their original container. Follow instructions on the container to determine if the plant should be removed or planted with the container.
