1

While your rose is stand­ing in wa­ter, place crocks in its new con­tainer and add John Innes No3 and well-rot­ted ma­nure or com­post.

2

Slide the rose from its pot and check that its roots are healthy and un­dam­aged. Care­fully spread them out be­fore plant­ing.

3

Add the rest of the com­post so the plant’s knob­bly graft sits just above the top of the soil. Firm the com­post to help an­chor the plant.

4

Wa­ter your rose well and don’t let it dry out while it gets es­tab­lished. Keep the com­post free of weeds, too.
