Replanting roses from pots to garden beds

I kept my roses in pots over winter till we built a new garden bed for them, they are now flowering and the bed is ready for them. Should I trim the roses before I plant them

Answer: Hi Theresa,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Yes, you can prune the roses before transplanting. Make sure improving soil by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser and water in some liquid Dynamic lifter once planted in the new garden bed. It’s important to keep the soil moist during the establishment period. Mulch can help maintain the soil moisture. Once the new growth reoccur, we suggest feeding every 6-8 weeks with Yates Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Pelletised Plant Food. It’s enriched with Dynamic Lifter and has added nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to give your flowering plants the right balance of nutrients for their growing needs. Click here for more info:

Hope this helps happy gardening.

Best Regards,
