Oak Forest, Il
|I am planting 2 Yellow Ribbon Groundcover Roses and 1 Happy Chappy Groundcover Rose in the front. (the roses are from Jackson and Perkins) I am taking out bushes that have been there since the 50's and I need to know what kind of soil, peat, or compost I need to make my roses grow and come back each year.

|After removing the old shrubs, spread 4-5 inches of compost or other organic matter over the soil and dig it in to a depth of 8-10 inches. Then dig the new planting holes and plant your roses. Mulch over the soil with an additional 2-3 inches of compost and your roses should be happy. Enjoy!
