Morning it OK to plant my rose Paul's Scarlett in ground now ...its growing and looking very healthy in the pot I would like to transfer to soil ground now ..thank you...



As long as the ground isn't waterlogged. Prepare a good hole for it first with lots of well-rotted organic material and a dose of mycorrhizal fungi to give the roots a really good start. And mulch with more organic material.
Keep it well-watered (but not over-watered) through its first year in the ground.

Organic material is anything that was once living - compost, manure, blood, fish and bone, paper etc as opposed to inorganic (grit/gravel/stones, metals)

Don't use the blood, fish and bone on its own - mix it into the compost. Add some grit, if you have any, to help with drainage at the roots.

Adding a mulch keeps down the weeds - mulch can be something like well-rotted manure or a good layer of gravel - depends on where you're planting and the overall look that you want in your garden.
