Let me share some advice about growing roses in a cold climate – we frequently incur severe frost here at Clonbinane and I’ll share this recent email inquiry which might assist you if you live in a cold area:
This was first posted last year and this year is no different except that right now I can send you extreme quality bare-rooted roses – truly, it’s NEVER TOO LATE to plant roses!!!!:
No, it’s not too late to order bare-rooted roses … just log onto rosesalesonline.com.au and I can assure you, I will post you the most beautiful winter roses which have been in their pots for a few weeks, have established roots and lovely new shoots.
I will carefully lift them from the pots with their coir-fibre potting mix around them, wrap them in damp newspaper, seal them off in a plastic bag and they will safely travel to your place … ready to plant in your garden and then flower this coming spring.
Yes, the roses will produce flowers this spring/summer provided you give them all the loving care they require. Lots and lots of sunshine, no less than 5 hours of sun per day.
They love seaweed solution to establish themselves in your soil – once a fortnight at least, all over the plant. While you are doing this seaweed solution, you might as well add the products we use in our organic rose management program – eco-oil insecticide, eco-rose/fungicide and eco-aminogrow which will ensure a complete dose of all that will be required for robust, healthy and environmentally managed roses in your garden.
If you need more advice, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I am more than happy to offer personal consultations to assure you grow the most beautiful, healthy roses in your garden.
