Rose help - Newbie
I hope I am posting this in the right spot, if not please forgive me as I am still a "newbie" to this site. I am planning a rose garden for the front of my house, I live in zone 5. I have never planted roses before and have been doing some homework on it. However, I still have some questions that I am hoping people could lead me in the right direction...
1. Has anyone ever purchased roses from DirectGardening.com Thoughts on the quality of their roses?
2. They say their roses are 2 years grown and shipped bare root dormant. If I purchase roses in this stage how long before I see results - this season or does it take a few seasons before I see blooms?
3. I know bare roots need to be soaked before planting, but do I submerge the entire plant or just the roots? Do I put anything in the water when soaking them?
4. When planting, for my zone 5, do I plant the bud union above or below the soil?
I am currently preparing the soil and having it properly tested...Thanks!!
