How To Care for your new Sweet Drift® Rose

Drift Roses are so easy to care for.  Basically just plant, water, and thats it!

At the time of planting, water your drift rose daily for at least 1 week with a hose.  Make sure that the root ball is throughly saturated so that it does not dry out.  If you have an sprinkler system, we still recommend hand watering just to ensure success.  

We suggest a quality slow release fertilizer to mix in or sprinkler around each drift rose.  The slow release fertilizer will ensure your drift rose will be covered in blooms! Fertilize 2 times a year.  Once in the spring, and again in the summer.  

Right before spring, you can prune your drift rose.  Its not required but it will help maintain vigor and strength as well as encourage better blooming.  We recommend pruning back, about 1/2 size.  Drift Roses are really easy and just a pleasure to add to your landscape.

 

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.  

 

Planting a shrub digging the hole

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Gorgeous and Hardy Bloomers
These arrived in great shape, but during a very hot week. Planted them and they looked a bit shocked for about a week, Within 2 weeks they were blooming and have taken off. So far so good. I am looking forward to seeing how they do through the winter and in their first full summer (2016). Lovely flowers.

Excellent plants, perfect condition
We ordered four Sweet Drift Rose plants. All were received in outstanding condition. The packing was well planned and there was no spillage of potting mix in shipment or removal of the plans. They transplanted well and are thriving in their new home.

I love this color of drift rose but have difficulty finding it for sale locally. This site is expensive but since there is not a local option, I am buying the roses I like. I hope they arrive as good-quality plants delivered in good shape.
