Stuck my bare do it roses in a bucket of water three days ago. In attack of hubris, I thought that I would pot them up the next day. It was cold and I'd gone off the boil.. This morning, I decided to do the decent thing, went to get them out of the bucket and discovered they were frozen solid. I considered using a hair dryer, but put them in the porch instead. By late afternoon, they'd thawed out and I managed to get them out of the bucket.They've been planted in pots temporarily.
If they survive, I'll put them in the ground in the spring. I wish I'd left them safely in the box!
The road to he'll is paved with good intentions.
