The Q&A Archives: Planting time for Roses

Question: I live in Bloomington,IL (Zone 5) and just getting into planting roses. When is the best time to plant them?

Thank You!


Answer: You can plant roses any time the ground is not frozen. In fact, bareroot roses are typically available in February; container grown roses are available nearly all year around.

Best wishes with your roses!
