Looking for a real knockout in the garden? This month, we’re all about the knockout rose at The Home Depot® and so are our friends at Bell Nursery, an exclusive provider for The Home Depot®.
Knockout roses are considered a shrub rose great for landscapes or pretty pots. Choose pink, yellow, white or the most common color, red. Blooming much of the year, they thrive in hot, dry locations. And in colder climates, knockout roses bloom from spring straight through fall’s first heavy frost.
When it comes to planting, Bell Nursery suggests a few key tips:
1. Plant them in full sun (six or more hours)
2. Allow them to dry completely between watering
3. Water the dirt instead of the foliage
4. Be sure to have drip irrigation if planted in a pot
