Knockout Rose Bushes

Why are my roses dying?

Zone Zone 7 | bbd63 added on July 24, 2015 | Answered

I planted a knockout rose bush in a nice sunny place a week ago. The rose bush had been in a pot for quite a while and was doing beautifully. Now a week after planting it and improving the soil with soil conditioner and other topsoil and Ferti-lome for roses and other flowers, all the blooms are dead. The leaves are still green. The bush is watered no less than every other day and we have had some rain during the week. I check the soil regularly to see if it is moist and it has never been dry. So, why is it in such bad state and what should I do?

    The good thing is that the leaves are healthy, so the plant should thrive. Remove the dead flowers, and the bush will concentrate its energies on establishing a strong root system in its current location, and send out vibrant new stems and leaves. Good luck.
