Help with my bare root roses
I am completely new to gardening. I have odered 21 rose bush , out of which 4 has already arrived and i planted them. Its really very confusing as each of the major rose sellers give different instructions. Add compost or not , water regularly or no watering untill spring, mound the canes.. I really don't know which to follow. I live in Melbourne, Australia..we have clay soil. No snow, temp doesn't get below 2 degree Celsius. No snow. Bit wet here. I have planted 4 with little compost added. Status of them are :
mr Lincoln: already had very few leaves , those leaves have grown
papa meilland : starting to leaf from red swelling it had.
perfume delight: no sign of anything
i planted them all last week.
our spring starts from September. suggestion pls
am i doing right?
any help much appreciated regarding watering and planting rest of my roses.we have clay soil but not very heavy.
