When planting roses should you leave the grafted point above soil level, or bury it beneath the soil?
Bury it about 2 inches/5cms below soil level.
Yes, I agree with Obelixx.
Received wisdom on this point has changed - when I was a lass Percy Thrower would tell us to ensure the graft point was above the soil. I think this allowed a lot of wind-rock which encouraged suckering.
Far better to keep that union buried and firm the plant in well.
Thanks for this. I wasn't sure of burying the graft encouraged suckering or the other way round. I'll plant it below soil level.
