planting bare root rose bushes

Zone 5 | dkbraley1 added on April 4, 2015 | Answered

my bare root rose bushes arrived and the temps are in the 30's and 40's. Can they be safely planted outdoors or is it too cold for them to survive? They already have leaf growth in them.

The Wall O Water protectors are like mini greenhouses for the rosebushes. Here is a link to what I am talking about for you:
