We've purchased a new construction home and would like to plant roses. When is the best time to plant roses in Northeast Florida and how should we go about it?

Congratulations on your new home! Roses love a well drained soil with lots of added organic matter. If at all in doubt about the soil drainage, build a raised planting bed for your roses. They want to be watered regularly, but not be kept soggy. They insist on full sun and will respond well to regular feeding with a balanced fertilizer. Container grown roses can be planted any time of year. Bareroot plants are best set in late winter. In your area, January would be a good time for bareroot roses.
