Help! Ants in the Rose Garden site

marial1214(Z 6 PA)May 27, 2007

Hi all, I normally post on the vegetable forum but this week I bought 2 new rose bushes from Home Depot. One is red called Salsa and the other is orange, in color, with the tag missing.

I scoped out two sites in the back of the house where I thought I would put them. One of the sites is infested with ants. Should I NOT put them there? Or how can I remedy the ant problem? I have a small dog that eats grass back there so I need a safe remedy please.

I hear ants are not coffee lovers. Spread grounds around. I hope there is no actual ants nest in there. If there is, somebody else will give you advice. Good luck!
