How to Care for Petite Knock Out Rose Tree
Before you buy a Petite Knock Out Rose Tree, make sure to read about the care instructions that are required and recommended to keep this plant healthy and thriving!
How do I water Petite Knock Out® Roses?
When you first plant your rose tree, we recommend watering once a week until it is fully established. Once established, you can taper off on the watering schedule. There is no particular schedule to follow, but always make sure your soil does not dry out. The best rule of thumb is to check the surrounding soil about 2 to 3 inches deep. If the soil is dry, it is time to water. If the soil is damp, do not water. Doing so might be too much and cause root rot.
How do I fertilize Petite Knock Out® Rose Tree?
We recommend your tree's soil is moist before you fertilize to help avoid its roots from burning. Use a balanced fertilizer or a fertilizer formulated specifically for roses. Feed after the first batch of flowers has bloomed. Do not fertilize late in the summer this is when the trees are preparing for their dormancy period. If you fertilize too late you could create unnecessary new growth that will most likely die back from the first hard frost of the year. We suggest fertilizing early to late spring to ensure your tree's success.
How do I plant Petite Knock Out® Rose Trees?
First, select an area of your landscape with well-draining soil and full to partial sunlight. Any area that receives 3 to 6 hours of sunlight each day will be the perfect location. Next, dig a hole between 2 and 3 times wider than your tree's root system. Once you place the root ball, backfill the soil. Make sure you tamp down to avoid any air pockets. Finally, give your tree good water to help establish its roots. If you are planting your tree in a container, find a pot about twice the width of your tree's shipped container. Pot your tree in organic, well-draining soil and give it good water.
How do I prune Petite Knock Out® Roses?
It is best to prune your roses during the late winter or early spring. You can remove dead leaves and prune to shape but deadheading is not necessary as it is a self cleaning rose tree.
