The Q&A Archives: A Bed for New Roses

Question: I need to make a bed for new roses. The sunny area I have selected presently has a pile of wood chips on it. The wood is maple, cherry

Answer: The soil under the wood chips should be fine to grow roses in. Just amend it with compost, throw a handful of lime in the hole and of course, remove the wood chips. Lilac root shoots will eventually bloom if planted in full sun, well drained soil and given plenty of water, It will probably take 3-4 years for the bush to reach bloom size.
