Unfortunately LoS is in my present order so I have no prior experience with it. I really love that rose so I hope I get a better shipment than yours... Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers!
Yeah, ordering roses is not always a source of pleasure and joy... Sighing! ( it should be though Smiling ) In the long run they reward you so much that afterwards you forget all the hassle you went through.
I hope you will be soon looking back with less annoyance and your roses growing healthily ahead keeping up with your wonderful memorial rose project.I'm sure your FIL will be aiding you from above! Angel
Both of you deserve it.

Thank you very much for the positive words. I'm glad they agreed with me at DA. Even though I'd rather have the Rose's I ordered due to the way I was laying out the color of the roses. They made right by refunding one and sending another. So I'm not gonna complain over color. And I made my high country order. So I'm happy either way. Bc the ones that are nice they sent are extremely thick canes and very long roots. And have tons of bud eyes starting out already.

How are burlingtons Rose's? Are they like high country in 5inch pots? I seen it says the Rose's are trimmed to fit in a flat rate box. They have a couple I want that are out of stock every where else. Like Reine des Violettes, SDLM(Cl), Clotilde Soupert... ect. I also seen for 23.00 they are in one gallons. Anyone ever got any from them in the 1 gallon? Shipping has to be outrageous.

Planted 20 or so new bare root roses the last few days. Along with 8 new David Austin bare roots. And one in a pot. Suppose to get cold tonight, and frost. I tried to buy bed sheets today. But no place had any. So hopefully garbage bags will work. I didnt have anything else. I thought something is better than nothing. Had to cover up our blueberries, strawberries, grape vines, and cucumber plants.
I hope the garbage bags are enough. Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers!

Plastic is never a good idea although I know you didn't have much choice this time around. If you have trouble finding cheap sheets, look for cheap blankets. And keep an eye out for anything cheap and sturdy that can be used to keep the weight off the plants a bit when you use blankets to cover.

All anyone can do at this point is cross fingers and hope for the best. I have to cover my veggies Fri night. Nothing else will get covered since the only thing blooming are my tree peonies and I covered them once already, won't do it again this season.

Seth, have any left-over dry hay/ bagged dry leaves up there in the farm?. I would tuck the hay between your bags and the rose canes. That will generate enough air pockets to trap daytime warmth and keep your canes from freezing.
Your roses will be hardy to withstand frost. However if they are just starting to leaf out, frost will damage them. After the cold spell is over you might have to prune out a bit... Sighing!
Anyway I'm Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! for you.

I got lucky it didnt frost last night. So today I'll be being shirts, towels, and whatnot. I wanted sheets so I could several at once. King sized sheets. But with the covid running wild. We cant even buy hamburger. Let alone stuff you want.

Keep in mind that once in the ground the roses are very hardy plants!

I wouldn't worry so much about the bare-roots. They should be covered almost to their tips with soil or mulch anyway if you just planted them. I don't know what to tell you about own-root potted roses. Mine are still in their pots this year until the frost date passes and maybe even beyond. Late frosts have really done a number on my roses that are in more shaded winter spots. It seems to lower the effective zone.

You need to put your roses in the sunniest spots the roses love the sun.
Even here in Hot and Humid Houston TX I have always planted my roses
where they get full sun for as much of the day as possible and they do
great.

They are only shaded a bit during the winter and are in full sun most of the year. We have had an exceptionally cold spring that followed very warm spells in Feb that pushed growth prematurely only to be frozen back. I think Seth is experiencing the same thing. It's probably a record cold this weekend. The die-back and weird leaves is very uneven depending on the natural hardiness of the rose. Blossomtime is untouched while Dark Desire is a disaster even in a sunny spot.

That is the reason to make sure that the roses are not in a place that gets shade
especially in the Winter months!

Exactly! Or put the most cold-hardy in those spots because sometimes we're limited.

I got my mulch in on the DA bed today. I had to go buy edging stone today first. And while I was out. I picked up a another DA I didnt have. Carding Mill. And White Eden. I got Carding Mill planted. Eden is still in its pot. Both were big 3gal pots. CM was 16.00 bucks. And WE was 13.00 so why not. Lol. They had tons of new roses at the local nursery. Lady in Red(Cl), Cherry Parfait, Golden Showers(Cl), Artic Blue, and tons of others. Had lots of DA's but I already have them. Mill on the floss will be here Monday. I need to get some metal labels so I can put next to the roses. I'm starting forget what is what. Without blooms.

Got everything covered up last night with sheets and towels. And brought my Eden inside. It's still spitting snow now. So everything is still covered up. Should I leave it covered since it's still snowing? And it's only 36° out right now. And frost warning remains in effect until 9:00am tomorrow morning

It's cold enough that some plants won't enjoy being uncovered then covered back up. Leave them be until tomorrow morning.

The sun came back and quit spitting snow. My sheets got wet and heavy. Its 44° here now. So I uncovered them. Had several new growths broke off. I'm so irritated about it. Some of them are bare root roses that just started growing. I'm so aggravated with mother mutate right now. Like I'm literally fuming.
