DIY - 4 Easy Steps to Plant Pulp Pot Roses
Full Sun Project
Project time: Less than 30 minutes
As you prepare to plant your dormant roses, here are a few tips and items you will need to help them succeed.
Step 1: Dig a hole twice the width and 11/2 the depth of the pulp pot.
Step 2: Mix soil from hole with Dr. Earth Mother Land All Purpose Planting Mix (ratio 50/50). Put a layer of soil mixture in the hole. Mix in recommended label rate of starter fertilizer.
Step 3: Place the pulp pot in the planting hole. If necessary, mound the soil in the bottom of the hole to raise or lower the pot to match the soil level inside the pot to the soil level outside the pot. Fill around pot with soil mixture.
Step 4: Soak the root area with a solution of Liquinox Vitamin B-1 solution.
As the Vitamin B-1 stimuates the root growth of the transplanted rose, the biodegradable pulp pot will begin to break down.
