I found this very helpful as i was unsure of whether to bury the stems very deep.

I found this very helpful, as i have quite a few bare roots to plant, but wasnt sure what to do with them during this snow and freezing temps.

If you want to plant new roses where roses have previously been growing , the it is advisable to change the soil . This can be done by taking soil from somewhere in the garden that roses haven;t been grown before , or buying sterilised top soil and using this to grow new roses . If you don;t do this you run the risk of getting what is known as rose sickness and the roses don;t do very well .So my advise is definitely change the soil for the best possible results.

Do you prune back the stems of a bare root rose. Mine has a green waxy substance on the larger stems.

do bare root roses establish quicker than pot grown ones ?

I brought some new roses with fresh new growth on them, can I plant them now and leave them, plant and cut back in to old growth or wait.

I would plant now and prune in late February - we may well get a cold snap before then, and any new growth might get nipped back so if you prune then it will give the resulting new growth a better chance

Agree with Dove and I'd also suggest planting them a little deeper to cover and protect potential buds at the bottom of the stems.  Some new roses arrived at about this time last year and had rather a lot of fresh growth on them which was later killed by frosts.  I was experimenting with planting depth at the time and out of the 4, the 2 I planted deeper sent up new shoots from the buried stems in the spring and flowered just fine.  The two planted with the graft at soil level died.
