Bareroot Rouge Valley order....and a monster!!!
Well, its "welcome to 2013 rose season" for me :) yeah!!!! I love this time each year when RVR offers their 1 & 5 gallon roses bareroot! They are always HUGE and healthy, and this year was no exception!
This year I ordered Corylus, R. Pendulina, and Blushing Lucy in 1 gallon pots (plus 8 bands tagged along for the ride). This picture of Corylus, in the 3g container I transferred it into, is exactly why I order bareroots from them (not to mention they're ownroot and already large and established). This is how large it was when it arrived in the mail today...over 5ft tall...healthy...ready to go in the ground next month! They had to bend the longest canes to even fit it into the box :)
Can't wait for more of my orders to arrive from the other nurseries! Bring on Spring!!!!
