Firm in Soil
Backfill around the root ball with excavated soil. Firm the soil to remove air pockets with your hands. Water the rose well, then apply a 2-inch layer of well-composted organic matter, making sure that it doesn't touch the stems. Water the rose regularly during its first year and apply a rose fertilizer each spring.
