Question: yes i just bought some roses and there bare root one is not doing anything but still green and the others are spourting but they look like roots but thats the way they came whats up and how can i help them

Answer: Francis,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Keep the soil around the roses moist. Make sure you have planted them at the proper depth. There should not be any roots on the surface and the plants should not be planted too deep either. Begin to feed them with a little Miracle Gro or a similar product and follow the label instructions carefully. Good luck with your roses!

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
