Roses-dug them up for landscaping, now what?
I'm new to flower gardening (previously only vegetables). We had to dig up some roses in the front of the house. I put them in a cardboard box with dirt and covered them with hay where they stayed for the winter. Since it's been such a warm winter, I noticed some new leaves sprouting on 1 plant. I had thought that i killed them.
Should I try replanting them? If so, what should I do? Cut off all stems? Divide roots? Just bury and wait? Feed it? Soak the roots in a hormone?
I have no idea what kind they are as the previous owner planted them.
Also, i have a vining flower that's in the box. I think it's a clematis. I read on this site that they are hard to propagate. But, if I cut back the vines and bury the roots, would it survive? I guess I can try but we have very little room so Im not sure if I should stick something in the spot that has a better chance of surviving.
