so, plant roses deep to bury the graft union or not to keep union well above the ground for roses??
there is clearly a difference of opinion even from the experts.
I have one rose...plenty enough for me ......that has its union maybe 3" below ground level. This according to David Austin. This morning an expert on the radio said to keep union high.
my natural inclination is to avoid burying the union....as in fruit or grafted shrubs
personally I see no reason to bury the union at all but, surely, by so doing the scion could be overrun?
