Answer: Bareroot roses can be planted anytime the ground is not frozen. Your new roses are dormant now and will remain dormant until the weather warms up. Since you're still getting some snow, you can wait until the snow melts before planting your roses, but be sure to store them in an unheated place such as a garage. Roses like slightly acidic soil (pH of 6.5). You can have your soil tested prior to planting your roses or you can mix some peat moss into the planting bed before you dig the planting holes. Don't just amend the planting holes - amend the entire bed. Otherwise, the roots may stay just in the planting holes instead of venturing out into the soil. Enjoy your new roses!
