When selecting the best places to plant a rose bush, it can be helpful to consider several factors, including what environment is likely to foster a healthy rose bush, new ideas for planting rose bushes in non-traditional settings, and how rose bushes will interact with neighboring plant life, among other considerations. While roses are generally easy to grow and care for as long as their basic growing requirements are met, there are other factors that can make a place a good choice for planting a rose bush. Learn from rose experts where the best places are to plant a rose bush in your home garden or landscape setting.
Nearly every varietal of rose bush prefers access to a minimum of six hours of bright direct sunlight daily, and moist, enriched soil that has excellent drainage. Additionally, the chosen space should give adequate room for rose bushes to grow height and width wise. Finding locations in your garden or landscape where these conditions occur naturally are the front runners for the best places to plant rose bushes.
Rose bushes can be installed successfully along the sides or in front of your home as a light privacy screen, around the base narrow shade trees as an accent planting, and for curb side plantings that can be both beautiful and protective. Other wonderful places to plant rose bushes include backyard circular plantings, up the sides of structures such as house walls, gazebos or garden walls using trellises, lining a walkway with multiple rose bushes and in back fence plantings where the fence can act as natural staking. Miniature roses can also be planted neatly and well in window boxes or post planters in sunny areas. Finally, rose bushes can be used as higher accent shrubs to lower level flowering plants.
