Dig the planting hole to be at least twice the width of the root ball. Do not plant too deep. This is essential. Planting too deep is the most common reason for young plant failure. The root flare zone, which is the top most root in the root ball, should be located just above the soil surface. If there is any soil above the root flare, scrap it off. It is recommended that you apply a thick layer of mulch around the shrub to help control weed growth. Use a regular watering schedule throughout the first growing season to help establish a root system.
Plant Lady Banks roses in difficult areas of the garden, such as those receiving full sun and hot temperatures or those that become shaded, as these plants tolerate a variety of conditions. Irrigate regularly when the top layer of soil feels dry to the touch, for best growth. Grow Lady Banks roses along supportive structures for interest that brings the eye up in the landscape. Place the roses near a trellis, fence or arbor for added beauty and color. Prune these plants with shears to maintain the desired height and shape after they flower in the spring; these plants bloom only once a year and pruning will not encourage repeat blooms.
