Question: when is the best time to plant roses?

Answer: You can plant bareroot roses as soon as they are available in your garden center - usually February or March. You can plant containerized roses in the spring or fall, when the weather is cool and the plants are not in bloom. I would avoid summertime planting - roses will be stressed from planting and the summer heat will make it hard for them to grow, flower and still establish their root systems.

Best wishes with your new roses!
