Oh dear! What is it with Craig's unwillingness to give a 10?.....I'm in good company seemingly, as on that point is irritating Len too. Jay & Aliona were definitely worth 4 10s tonight. I loved Kellie & Kevin's waltz.  www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03b6h2w

I think probably Katie & Anton will ne out this week.

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)".......as per the RHS.

So sorry, Frank.....it's generally thought that anything north of us good folk of Staffordshire is either Yorkshire or Scottish.

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