How to plant Papa Meilland roses

Planting Papa Meilland roses requires patience and care, but it is well worth the effort to enjoy the beautiful result. Start by digging a hole twice as wide and deep as the current root ball of your budding rose. To give your new plant its best chance to thrive, mix quality soil with compost or well-rotted manure in equal parts and fill in your planting hole with this mixture. Lastly, when you are finished, stake taller varieties to provide enough support while they are firmly establishing their roots in the ground.
