Roses are high maintenance plants. Here is a site that covers many aspects of raising roses. This may give you some analytical insight into yours. http://************/aldzq

Transplant potted rose as soon as possible after it finishes blooming. Dig a large hole, 24" wide by 24" deep. Include one-third compost to two-thirds soil. You can also add one cup bonemeal, one cup bloodmeal,and one tablespoon slow-release fertilizer. Try not to disturb the rootball when transplanting. Make sure the bud union is about an inch above ground level.
Give the plant a good, deep soaking after you plant it.
