  • Nope actually you can plant perenials well into the fall. I am a big miracle grow person, I think it makes all the differnece. Good luck.

  • My roses bloom all year, I have 9 rose bushes all different colors and types. I've planted them at different times of year over the last 7 years. I've even transplanted a few I wanted in a different spot. Just remember they need atleast 6 hours of sun and well drained rich soil with a good fertilizer. Knock out roses are the best especially if you live in Texas. They're heat tolerant and bloom like crazy.

  • If you do plant ...and you should be fine. Just remember to make a cone of soil and compost in the planting hole. Set the roots around that. Like it is a pyrimid with rose roots going down it. With the plant resting on top. Throw in a couple banana peels and plant so the bottom nub of the plant is just above the ground and you should be more than fine
