Get your bare roots in!
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.
