Sorry I should have been clearer . I kept them as described above for approx 3 weeks before planting them in post and leaving in the greenhouse while it snowed. They do not look very well now, and unlike the otehrs i mentioned, have no shoots etc. .

 

I THINK that the shrubs came from Thompson Morgan and were a GW offer in the magazine.

Can anyone remember exactly?

I ordered and received the Alan Titchmarsh roses offer last December and planted them as instructed - they were bare roots, soI planted them at an angle in a mix of soil and a little (not a lot, to avoid root burn) compost. Thery over-wintered in the green house (not heated). I came to plant them and they are looking VERY sad, brown and rather not alive, whereas others, now in pots are doing famously.

Any advice?
