Back in February I decided to take the chance and order bare-root roses for delivery on April 30th. I’m so glad I did. What I received was nothing like what you could find at a garden centre, unless of course you go to a nursery specializing in roses which is hard to find in my area. I ordered three – Floral Fairy Tale, Pomponella Fairy Tale and a David Austin ‘Graham Thomas’, all of which are double roses.
I was a bit reluctant to try roses and they still make me nervous that I’ll lose them somehow, but I’m eager to try it out. I soaked the roses for a few hours, trimmed the roots, planted them to the required depth, trimmed the canes and gave them lots of water. I’m excited to see what this summer will bring !
