Pdoc, OH is probably right ... they usually are, I find  Look forward to tea and crumpets by the fire when you come back in.  

My OH is convinced I need to drive him to a local trading estate as he has something to collect ... he's probably right as well ... 

Can tomatoe diseases be transmitted to roses? (may be a stupid question)

Just keep their roots damp - not sodden - just damp - and keep them in the cool.  You don't want them to think spring has arrived so that they start growing. 

Thompson & Morgan - issues!

Aym you misunderstand me - I was referring to the fact that you and I disagree about whether you have the expertise needed to 'bring it back to life'.  I've seen photos of the plants you've grown from seed and dahlias that you've grown from tubers.  Both need more expertise than planting a bare root rose in the garden.

We did once have a photo sent in of a bare root rose that wasn't growing ... the poster had planted it upside down!    But I know that you wouldn't do that

As I've said Aym ... all you need to do is plant it ... Spring will do the rest ... but you're convinced that you're right and I'm wrong so we'll leave it at that.  But it's a shame to encourage the OP to complain about having received something if there's nothing wrong with it.

Yes, I take it back - Angus looks bad down south, but nothing here other than gusty blowiness and drizzle despite all the warnings.  

Hope the seamen on the the ships are ok. 

BL, I remember when we moved to Suffolk when I was a small child.  We moved into a dilapidated very old farmhouse - our one cat (Socks) was almost overwhelmed by the task but he set about it assiduously - at one time he had two mice in his mouth at once.  My granny came to stay with us to help out over the move - she said that one night in bed she felt something and woke to see a mouse run across her chest!  Fortunately she was made of stern stuff and it didn't faze her at all   However it was a topic of conversation at Christmas visits for years to come.
