Plant container-grown roses in spring or fall (at least a month before frost), at the same level they were in the pot. Plant bare-root roses in early spring; before planting, soak entire plant in water for 12 to 24 hours to replace lost moisture. Dig a 2-by-2-foot hole. Return some soil to hole, forming a 1-foot mound. Place plant on the mound, fanning out roots. In Zones 6 and warmer, set bud union just above soil level. In Zones 5 and colder, set bud union 2 to 4 inches below soil level. Cover roots with soil, and water thoroughly, but do not fertilize at this time. 1 When leaf buds open in spring, remove winter-damaged branches, and crossing and weak canes.
