Answer: Bare root roses need to be kept cool so they will stay dormant, or if they have begun to leaf out, they need to be planted immediately. You could plant them in large containers of soilless mix and set them outside in a sheltered location out of the wind so they can wake up naturally with the season. (Pile snow or mulch around the exterior of the pots to keep the roots insulated.)Alternatively, you could contact the suppliers and explain the situation and see what they recommend.
