I live in North Georgia (USA) and I want to grow a rose bush. Knockouts are sold around here all the time and are fairly cheap, and I'm wondering when is the best time to put one in the ground?
I started one this past spring and lost it to a combination of over watering, black spot mold, not enough sun, and then drought (hey, it's been a fun year).
I'm going to pick a sunnier spot this time so the mold shouldn't be as much of an issue and will take care and do a better job watering too.
Should I start one now (later October/early November, we should be getting a frost any day now) or wait until Spring?
