Did I plant it deep enough? (pic included)

I just re potted this and wanted to know if its deep enough. About an inch below the soil is a knot with the large chunky roots and mini roots coming off that ball. I did not know if it was that ball or this ball shown. I did have the soil up to the ball pictured and think it was planted too deep so I repoted it to this depth.
Thank you for your help! :lol:

If you buried the entire root ball, then it is deep enough.

If this is a grafted rose, you buried the graft (that's the knot) that needs to be above the soil line for the rose to do well. If you're talking a bare roots rose then what you have there should be fine.

I'd rather be gardening!
