PLANTING BARE ROOT ROSES:
Remove the plant from its bag or covering . Where roots have been confined, gently move them back into a more outward direction. Trim back any broken or long roots using sharp secateurs . Dig a hole as deep as the roots and wider. Water the hole prior to planting. Do not place fertilizer in or around the hole when planting. ( Wait until new growth appears) . Plant your rose so the bud union is 3-5cm above soil level . Backfill around the roots.
Firm the soil gently and water in well.
