Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

Roses benefit from the addition of compost, aged manure, or leafmold to the planting soil. Light: At least 5 - 6 hours of direct sun per day is preferred. Water: One inch of water per week throughout their first growing season. A generous layer of organic mulch (compost or composted manure) helps keep the soil evenly moist. If the weather is dry in the fall, be sure to water roses well. Never allow the foliage to remain wet into the evening; water early in the day. Spacing: 2.5' - 4' Fertilizing: To keep the flowers coming, feed your roses with a fertilizer blended especially for roses. This should be done after each bloom cycle. Winterizing: If you live near a rose's cold limit, and you garden on an exposed site or in an area where rapid temperature fluctuations are common, you should mound two shovelfuls of composted manure, garden soil, compost, or shredded leaves over the base of the plant in late fall after the ground freezes. Covering these mounds and the lower parts of the bushes with evergreen boughs will add protection. Pull the mounding material away from the stem as new growth emerges in spring. Maintenance & Pruning: While not necessary, may be shaped in spring. There is no need to remove faded flowers because these roses are self-cleaning. No spraying is required.
