Talkback: How to plant a bare-root rose

Posted: 04/12/2015 at 11:33

Rosemummy touched on this above.......and I would stress the importance of using  Mycorrhizal Fungi, particularly if planting where roses have grown previously. 

There have been some change in thinking re planting depths since I started out, but I still plant mine the old way i.e. with the graft union just above the surface of the soil. Modern thinking dictates the graft union being "at soil level (not below as this is reported to increase the risk of rose dieback)" per the RHS.

Quite simply, yoweey, to allow sufficient room between rows to pick the fruit. even well trained canes will have a spread of 2ft.

Hard to choose, but surely both are heading for the final.

PS. Frank or Obs will tell us, but I think Jay's tango was technically better.
