I have NO idea what I'm doing...

I just bought a bare root rose (Peace) and I don't know what to do now... I'm sorry, I'm so new at this! The roots are covered in mulch. I want to put them in a container eventually.

The sooner you can plant it the better. Take off all the packaging and the mulch or whatever soil is on it and soak it in a bucket of water for at least a few hours but overnight it better and then get it planted.

Thank you, Seil. You've been very helpful and patient with me on my forums!
