rose bush has big roots

Zone Indiana | Mclark added on April 3, 2015 | Answered

I planted a rose bush about 5-6 years ago. I noticed last year that my bush has big roots like a tree at the bottom. These roots are not underground. What should I do?

I would add some amended garden soils all around the rosebush about 3 inches deep. It sounds like some erosion may have taken place and more soils need to be added. Mulch all around the rosebush after adding the soil to help hold it in place as well as hold in valuable soils moisture.
