How Long can you keep bare root/dormant roses
in their plastic bags before planting? And do you need to water, or should they just be left alone?
Currently, I have 20 of them in my garage and I recently hurt my back (herniated disk) I'm getting better, but I'm afraid if I go out and try to plant 20 rose bushes, they'll have to hospitalize me :)
I also wanted to ask about very light colored shoots that are coming from the canes...not just leaves, but 3 to 4 inch growth...these roses apparently were in boxes and probably too long...they are healthy looking however and the canes are all green...should this growth be cut off? I wish I could take a photo, but the camera memory card isn't working...ugh...
