to plant or not to plant rose bushes in winter?
hi guys, just a quick one (for a change) i have recently ordered some bare root rose bushes from ebay and David Austin - just my luck they have been delayed and have not been delivered yet. the problem is we have now had two quite heavy frosts and they still arnt here - will i be safe to plant them straight out?, my cold frame is completely packed solid. the areas where they are to be planted are all areas which do defrost during the day in the sun (if we have any!) not had much experience with growing roses (only arranging cut ones on vallentines day!) any advice offered on this would be most apprciated.
