Help! - Mail order bare-root Roses arrived and couldn't plant due to the wet weather.
I know it's a bit late in the day but I ordered some mail order bare root roses on Friday and they assured me they wouldn't be delivered until after Tuesday. We went away for on Friday and got back today to find them they had been delivered.
I have removed them from the special packaging and (althought they weren't dried out) soaked them in a bucket. I read you are supposed to plant immediately but the rain here today has been torrential and I haven't prepared the planting holes yet. I am worried what to do next - keep them in the water until I can plant, or remove them from the bucket and put back in the packaging? Worried that keeping them in the bucket of water for another day water may be bad for them?
