Get your bare roots in!

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - OUTDOORS -

Buy­ing bare root roses, hedges and fruit bushes is the most cost ef­fec­tive and they are avail­able dur­ing the win­ter months when the plants are dor­mant. They ar­rive with no soil around the roots to pro­tect them, so need to be planted as soon as pos­si­ble. If the ground is wa­ter­logged or frozen you can plant them in a pot tem­po­rar­ily.

Pre­pare the ground by adding or­ganic mat­ter be­fore plant­ing and add a mulch af­ter to hold mois­ture, but make sure it doesn’t touch the stems. Wa­ter well and they will burst into life in spring.
