Now is the perfect time to plant up a bare root and containerised roses.

Ideally, this rose needs to be planted into the ground as soon as you get them home.

The soil needs to be neither frozen nor too dry. Therefore, its best to make sure the conditions are right.

When planting, make sure you apply some well-rotted organic matter in the area you wish to place the rose.
