How do y'all plant your roses?
Mine? In the ground, DH digs a big hole about 18" wide and 15" deep. I mix 1/4 expanded shale, 1/2 compost, 1/4 native clay soil. Toss some fertilizer (basic rose fertilizer) on top. Then mulch.
In raised beds with enriched trucked in soil, I place in bed, small hole, fertilizer, mulch.
Do y'all grow (hybrid teas especially) in specially prepared beds or treat like most any other plant and dig a hole without amending ??
I'd love to make it easier if I don't need to do all that amending...but I always do. (My soil isn't horrible!)
