When is the best time to plant Roses.



If they're container grown - any time. Bare rooted ones need planting in late autumn.

Hi Spritz, you may be right about autumn although we've always planted out at beginning of Feb. Nurseries dispatch bare root roses between Nov & March. We just bought & planted up 30+ roses from Aldi @ £1.49 each - absolutely cracking plants & 100 times better than the £7 ones we just bought through a well established rose company catalogue. Roots from nursery delivery were bare & Aldi's had a tiny bit of compost in the root bag which was still damp. We did buy them only a couple of days after they came into the shop mind you so they were very fresh. Hope this helps STB - some well rotted mature / fertiliser & bone meal give a good start.

I should have said - 'in late autumn onwards'! I was thinking of the firms that start delivery of bare-rooted roses as from them. Sorry if I confused you, Stb.

That was a bargain, The cottage! :-))

Certainly was Spritz - will probably take them a year to get bedded in & start producing good blooms. Most were HBT's & had between 3 & 5 stems. At the price won't break the bank if we ever need to replace failures. Hopefully will get some pics of them to share with GoY in the summer. :o)

Even if you do get a few failures, you won't be upset at that price, will you?

How do I say thanks?
