Jumbo Roses

Jumbo bare root roses are a popular choice for gardeners looking to plant typically between late fall and early spring. Bare root roses are sold without soil around their roots, making them lightweight and easy to transport. Planting bare root roses allows for a wider selection of varieties and often results in quicker acclimation and vigorous growth, as the plants establish themselves directly in their new environment.

    When to Plant Bare Root Roses

    Plant bare root roses during their dormant period, typically between late fall and early spring, when the risk of frost has passed and the soil is workable.

    How to Plant Bare Root Roses

    Soak the roots in water for at least an hour (but no more than 12 hours) just before planting. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the spread of the roots, set the plant so that the bud union is just above the soil line, backfill with soil, and water thoroughly. If planting must be delayed, open the plastic bag your roses are in and cover the roots with damp newspaper to keep them moist. Partially close the plastic bag, and store in a cool, sheltered area away from sun and wind. Keep the newspaper/roots moist until you are ready to plant.

    How Often to Water Bare Root Roses After Planting

    Roses require the equivalent of 1" of rainfall each week. They will bloom best if their roots are kept moist but not waterlogged. Water thoroughly—a slow, deep soak at the ground is most efficient. Don't water from above—avoid getting foliage wet, as this can encourage disease problems.
