Should I cover

dmoore66_gardener(6)March 27, 2012

Just bought a barerooted kordes perfecta that has several new shoots about a inch long. I want to plant this rose today.

Should i cover the shoots with shredded mulch for a week or so or can it survive the way it is?

I cover the canes with mulch for up to a week, as the new shoots are especially vulnerable to heat, cold and wind.

I heard you should soak bare root roses in a 5 gal bucket or submerge it in water overnight before you plant it...
