Mail order Bareroot
So, I ordered some bare root roses from bloomingbulb.com and they arrived in the mail today. I'm not sure what to make of them since this is my first mail order experience.
I ordered the following: the generous gardener, the lady of shalott, and jubilee celebration. The Generous Gardener came with 4 decently sized canes, one injured to the point where I'll have to cut it off. The Lady of Shalott has some damaged roots I'll have to cut off. Jubilee Celebration has blackened ends on the canes.
They all came in moist plastic bags, no other packaging. All three smell horrid. They are green and it looks like the roots are long and mostly healthy.
So my question, are my bushes doomed or will they rebound (I don't want to complain)? D:
Edit: I finally found a way to explain the scent. they smell like the inside of an aquarium museum.
