Bare Root Roses

Roses are a beautiful and wondrous flower that many gardeners and homeowners at least plant one of in their garden or landscape area. 

They come in a multitude of varieties, shapes, and sizes to suit any need or desire you may have. 

You can find super small shrub-like forms ranging in sizes. Some can be as large as a small tree. The process is more natural, and they will still yield beautiful blooms that are visually striking in any area. When you first see them, they will not be appealing at all as they are in their dormant stage. They look like a little pile of sticks or twigs. However, these are much easier to transplant and move to different areas and are also much less expensive than those bought growing in containers already. Like many other plants and flowers, roses will not bloom during the winter, and no growth happens during this period. It is what makes bare root roses a possibility because it is not receiving any nutrients from the soil, uprooting the plant will not be harmful or stressful for them at all.

When you buy this kind of rose plant, plant it as soon as possible before the growth period arrives again in the early spring time of the year. Most recommend soaking the roots in room temperature water for about twenty-four hours before planting. It helps the roots rehydrate themselves slowly and naturally. Plant where it can get seven hours of light. Also adding about two to three inches of compost mix to the plant will make a drastic difference in its color, productivity and will keep weeds at bay while maintaining moisture in the soil. Colors range in any you want, and you should try one they make an addition to your garden area.
