It's Easy to Plant your Double Knock Out® Rose

Specific Directions for Double Knock Out® Rose
Your Knockout Roses will thrive in an area the receives full to partial sunlight, and prefer six to eight hours of sunlight a day. Afternoon shade will be more beneficial for your Roses than morning shade.

Your natural soil will be great for your Knock out Roses especially if it's well drained, and isn't too light or sandy. Keep your soil moist, not over saturated. To help hold the moisture in spread mulch around the base of your Knockout roses. Knockout roses prefer to receive water at their bases instead of receiving water from overhead.

You'll see blooms on your Knockout Roses early every Spring, that will last until your first frost. Knockout Roses produce new blooms every four to six weeks and will love it if you give them organic fertilizer once a month after their first blooming cycle.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Double Knock Out® Rose.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Double Knock Out® Rose gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Double Knock Out® Rose again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I bought these b/c of the assurance that not much work was required. THESE ROSES HOLD TRUE TO THEIR DESCRIPTION. I ordered 2 3-gallon bushes & a rose tree. I have since ordered 5 more 3-gallon roses & another rose tree. I had roses INSTANTLY after planting & Im no gardener by far. These roses are so trouble-free & I am so pleased! My roses are the talk of my housing community!

Double Kbnockouts
What a delight to purchase 20 of these for a garden wall and see them absolutely explode with new growth and height. Actually, I can not believe that we have to deadhead ( remove dead blossom) every third day at this time. I used some iron and a bit of Epsom to get them going and they have survived the cold, freezing and hot 103-plus weather and been a delight to see in the yard. Not as tall yet but they are flowering as the picture here shows. Thank you FGT!

I had 15 1 gal DK Roses planted 3 years ago. 1st of all I want to say dealing with Fast Growing Trees was a wonderful experience (long story). My puppy got hold of 2 of them before we could get them in the ground and I thought he had killed them. He did stunt their growth because the other 13 are doing fabulous. My husband hates mowing around anything, I put these were he wouldn't have to, and other than the 1st day we planted them I have never even watered them. That says a lot because it gets extremely hot here in S. IN. My husband is so impressed that he wants me to plant more in a another area that he doesn't want to have to weed wack. Unfortunately I'm going to have to wait until next spring to do it, but if he is actually willing to do the planting that SCREAMS beauty and success. I can't wait! I'll keep you posted!!

I've been so excited for these to come in, waited 2 months. I still planted them and I hope they grow beautifully as everyone says but know one thing: these roses are NOT red! They're fushia/hot pink. The pictures all look red and the description says dark to light ""red."" They're pink if I ever saw pink. I'm disappointed because I specifically looked for red and could have gotten them elsewhere had I known

So far, so good.
Planted them about 3 feet apart, down a 30 inch wide planter, between my driveway and the walkway from the street to my front porch. I put in a drip line down the whole length of the planter, with drip feeds to each plant. It waters once a week. However, my lawn sprinklers tend to wet the planter soil. I treated the soil with compost and sand (bentonite) before planting.

We have never been able to keep a plant alive, so when a friend mentioned double knockout rose bushes, we discovered Fast Growing Trees. As the site showed, we are just now two weeks in to them being planted and they have an explosion of open blooms that are stunning. Neighbors are constantly stopping us to comment on them and are shocked when we tell them they are only two weeks old. We are planning on buying the matching tree for our front yard as well! Highly recommend this to those of you who have not had the ""green thumb"" in the past! :

Bushes arrived nicely packaged. I was a bit let down when two of my four starting growing pink roses instead of red as advertised. Also, not a very rosey looking bloom. They look more like the last two pictures on the site and not the first couple. A pretty flower... just doesn't look like what you would think a rose looks like. Overall, not as impressed as I hoped to be. Not very fond of the pink bushes, either.

Double Knockout Roses
I ordered 6 Double Knockout Roses from Fast Growing Trees. When I received my plants i watered them every other day for 3 days. I then eased them into part shade part sun for another week. I then planted them outside of my Lanai. At first they still appeared dried out but I continued watering them. I added Epsom salt for plants around the dirt and a small amount of Double knockout Roses plant food. Now, they're looking beautiful and healthy. I see great progress everyday. I am amazed at the transformation of my plants from stress to healthy. With a little patience, love and care they are on their way to becoming a center piece to my landscape. I'm very well pleased.

I have some knockout roses. Should they be pruned back in the Fall or should I wait until spring?
Sandy G on Oct 28, 2014
Best Answer: The best time to prune the Knock Outs is early spring just as buds begin to break dormancy, usually around the time the Forsythias bloom. For the Knock Outs, you should wait until the second season of growth to prune, How high you prune depends on how high you want your rose bush to finish. It usually triples in size after pruning, so if you cut it back to a foot, it will finish up at 3 feet during the growing season.

how many double knockout roses do i need to plant to make a 12 foot long hedge?
gatornon on Feb 5, 2015
Best Answer: If you want a solid hedge, you can plant them 3 feet apart, so that would take 4 plants. If you like to see the rounded top shape of each individual bush, plant them 4 feet apart, which would take 3 bushes. If you want a really dense, tight hedge, plant them 2 1/2 feet apart, which would require 5 plants.

I planted the Double Knock Out Rose 1 week ago and have noticed the leaves are turning brown and are shriveling up. Also the middle of the roses are turning brown. Is this to be expected? This is the first time I have planted a rose bush in my yard.

Best Answer: I ordered 16 double knock out bushes over a year ago and now have a beautiful hedge in my front yard. I cut about 3 dozen roses each week and the blooms last! I did have some leaf spot early on and sprayed them with a mix of milk and water which seemed to do the trick. They are so beautiful that one night someone took 2 bushes right out of the ground! I tried replacing with double knock outs from Kmart and noticed that those bushes are not thriving like the others. I will replace then from Fast Growing Trees. Enjoy!!

Do they have thorns?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, but not as large, numerous or as sharp as many roses, particularly some of the older heirloom varieties. These are almost carefree roses. They bloom from spring to fall. A great choice that will enhance most landscapes.

There were no instructions on what to do with the Fert-Pact I bought 2 sets of 3 with the 2 double Knockout Rouse bushes. Do I bury the 3 of them at time of planting. Or do I bury 1 at a time so many months apart?

Are these shrubs deer resistant?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2014
Best Answer: I do not know, we do not have deer in our neighborhood. No problem with other critters like squirrels, raccoons and foxes. My guess that if deer bother other roses, they are likely to bother these.....but the thorns on roses may be their protection.

do i cut knock out roses down in fall/winter?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2014
Best Answer: NEVER CUT ROSES BACK just to do that. Prune out dead wood and conservatively prune for shape and interior health. If you have a branch way out of proportion to the size and shape of your rose, take it back to the nearest branch junction. In the center of the plant if you have branches crossing, you will need to study the situation and remove horizontal crossing branches one at a time. You may not be able to do this all at once, but it will prevent mildew damage if the rose can get more ventilation in the center. Study the plant and see where each branch goes before deciding which one to cut. Always remove diseased growth and do not leave trimmings on the ground by your roses. I just love my Knockout Rose - a double red. It is two years old and really coming into its own. It does not need a lot of pruning. I caution that roses need space according to their ultimate size, and should not be planted too close together. All plants deserve the room to achieve their natural size and shape, and should not be pruned for size alone. Hope all this helps.

what month is the ideal time to plant double knockout roses in zone 6?
nancy t on Sep 9, 2014
Best Answer: I want to apologize, but I live in zone 8 and do not know any information about planting in Zone 6. I did not want to ignore your question completely by ignoring the message. I have purchased a lot of plants from this company and have found them to be very helpful with any question I have had regarding products, and prefer to buy all my plants from this company as they have always arrived in good condition and more mature than going to the local home improvement type stores. I have even ordered other plants online from other companies and have recieved clippings instead of a rooted plant (I was able to salvage 3 of the 6 clippings and over a year later have somewhat decent plants, but I know that, had i bought from these folks, I would have 6 beautiful lush plants, I believe it was something they didn't offer is why I bought elsewhere). If my answering stops you from getting answered by someone else, I sincerely apologize. You may want to call the company and ask them for their opinion on when the best time is, or repost your question if my answer closes this one.

Margaret J on Jul 19, 2015
Best Answer: Well, Fast Growing Trees tells me I bought some in July so I'm sure I planted them in July, in St. Marys. GA several years ago. They are doing splendidly. We have many 100 plus days here in July. I planted them in a 50/50 mix of Miracle Grow shrub and tree soil and Black Cow composted manure and kept them watered. No problem with heat. A pity I can't attach photos. Come this winter, they will be large enough to prune into a hedge.

best time to plant knock out roses?
andy l on May 17, 2015
Best Answer: I planted my knock out rose tree in early spring. I put it in a pot and if I was afraid of cold nights (Michigan) I moved it to the garage.
It is doing well. I am worried about putting it into the ground and having it survive the winter.
I suppose I could dig it out, lay it on the ground, and cover it to protect it during the cold winter winds.

However I will probably leave it as a potted plant. It looks really good on the patio.
I will move it into the garage for the winter.

Hope this helps.

How do you deadhead knockout roses after the first bloom?
Myron on Jul 30, 2014
Best Answer: Double Knockout Roses do not need to be dead headed. Simply removing old blooms is enough pruning. Another wave of blooms will quickly fill in. Cut below the flower stern with sharp clean pruners. If you see a cluster of flowers that are dull or wilting cut below he cluster. Cut farther down on the stem if you prefer slower growing more mature roses.

Best Answer: It's best to plant in the fall about six weeks before the grist freeze or in the spring after the final frost. As long as your ground isn't frozen you can go ahead and plant them now. However, it may be best to wait until spring depending on how harsh the winters are in your area.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most dormant trees shipped in the

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
