Q.Bare Root Or Container Roses?

Zone Walnut, California/10a | Anonymous added on April 10, 2024 | Answered

Good day, I bought some bare root roses from Aldi and Home Depot a month ago, the former ones in plastic bags, latter ones with plastic containers. When I first bought them, they all had grown quite a bit of leaves already, I water them and let them have sunshine everyday, today they all grow taller, bigger, and look very healthy, almost like small rose trees. One of the roses even got 3 rose buds! I plan to plant them inground, should I treat them as bare root or container roses? The soil in the bags or containers are always moist. My question is should I remove the soil when I plant them? Or I can plant them with the soil. Please advise. Thank you.

Plant them right away and include the soil that is in the bags. Bare root roses should always be planted soon after receiving them. Typically, bare root roses do not have soil with them. Here is more:
