Caring for your Bare Root Roses
On receipt, soak the roots in water for at least two hours (overnight is better).
Planting in Ground
Select an appropriate spot for your roses, making sure that you give them enough space to grow
Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, fork over the bottom to loosen the soil
Add some good quality fertiliser eg. Blood Fish & Bone
Aim to plant at the same depth as the soil mark on the trunk. Holding the rose upright with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil.
Use your heel to compact the soil around the rose to ensure good contact with the roots
Planting In Pots
If you’re planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones, or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage
Always try to use the best compost you can buy
Add some sand or grit to aid drainage
You are again aiming to plant to the depth of the soil mark. Firm down as you fill and press down hard with your heel when the pot is full.
