Q.

bare root roses

Zone zone 9b | Anonymous added on February 4, 2020 | Answered

My yard is riddled with oak tree roots. ( It will be removed soon) I bought two large feeding buckets from our local feed store. My question is, can I expect my roses to thrive in such conditions? The containers are approx. 28 inches from side to side. Please excuse me for not providing a picture, as I am tech challenged.

Once the roots are removed, it would be helpful to do a soil test before amending and planting. You can contact your local extension service for this.

You can enrich the soil with compost and other amendments to prepare a bed for roses. These articles will help:
