How to Plant an Easter Micro-Mini Rose Bush


An Easter micro-mini rose bush is the smallest rose bush available. They only grow to about 5 or 6 inches in height and have flowers about 1 inch to ¼ inch in diameter. However, these tiny rose bushes are actually hardier than many other varieties of roses, and survive in USDA zones 6 to 10. Planting an Easter micro-mini rose bush is similar to planting a normal sized rose bush, although you should take care in site-selection since the micro-mini rose bush is so small.

Step 1

Choose a spot for the Easter micro-mini rose bush. They need full sun to partial shade and rich well drained soil. Add 2 to 3 inches of compost to your soil if it is too sandy or clay like and work it in to 4 or 5 inches in depth.

Step 2

Dig a hole for the Easter micro-mini rose bush as deep as the root ball and 2 times as wide.

Step 3

Remove the Easter micro-mini rose bush from its container. Loosen the roots of the rose bush with your hands.

Step 4

Place the Easter micro-mini rose bush in the hole. Fill the hole with soil and pat it down firmly.

Step 5

Water the Easter micro-mini rose bush until the soil is moist and add a ½ inch thick mulch around the rose bush .
