We have an arbor down the shore that I've been trying to 'liven' up. I've tried a few flowers, but this time I'm going for roses. Rosa'Radrazz' or aka The knock-out rose, to be exact.
Fall is coming and the best time of year to plant roses in your garden is spring or fall, avoiding the heat and cold is a must, so I'm preparing to do it soon. The arbor is in a bright are, which works for me because they need consistent light and full sun to thrive. They're hardy and are exceptionally diseases resistant, so, if I follow the instructions I should be good to go!

- Dig a hole twice as wide and as deep as the container your rose came in, then carefully remove the rose from its pot.
- Loosen up its roots and place it in the hole, replacing the soil and patting down around the base of the plant.
- Water it thoroughly, and for the next several weeks, check on the soil moisture as your Knock Out rose is acclimating.
