How to grow double knock out roses
Growing double knock out roses is relatively easy and rewarding. First, choose a sunny location with well-draining soil. Double knock out roses thrive in full sun, so make sure they receive at least six hours of direct sunlight daily. Prepare the soil by adding organic matter such as compost or aged manure to improve its fertility and drainage. Dig a hole twice as wide and deep as the root ball of the plant and gently place the rose in it, ensuring that the bud union is at ground level. Backfill the hole with soil, firming it gently around the roots. Water the newly planted rose thoroughly and provide regular watering throughout the growing season. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to conserve moisture and suppress weed growth. Finally, prune the roses in early spring to remove dead or weak branches and promote new growth. With proper care and attention, double knock out roses will reward you with beautiful blooms throughout the summer and fall.
