Hi all
I was going to repot my rose this spring and lift it up a little since in earlier forum I was advices to do so However I just saw a video on how to plant bare root and they had buried the knobby This made me think that instead of lifting maybe I need to add more compost
What should I do ?

Very pretty! In general it is recommended to bury the "nobby" in cold climates and leave it above ground in warm ones.

What porkpal said, planting the "knobby" can help protect it in cold climates but can run the risk of the plant suckering (which may or may not be a problem in itself) or developing its own root system that may not be as good as what it was grafted on too.
Anyone with oryzalin (aka Surflan, Embargo), am looking for a small amount rather than 5litres from manufacturer (min size in Australia....)
