When is it safe to plant potted roses out in the garden?

A:  While there are no guarantees, mid-May is typically a safe bet but be prepared to cover newly planted, greenhouse grown roses if the temperature threaten to drop below 35F.  Roses are a long term investment so don't scrimp on the soil preparation.  Plant the graft union 2-3” below the soil surface.  Fertilize monthly with a high quality rose food until early September for the best results.
