Hi all just ordered a bare root standard rose from DA for my daughter as a Christmas present. What’s the best way to look after it until she can plant it in her garden? Thanks

    I did consider that as she probably won’t put it in the garden until spring. Never done bare root roses before so any advice gratefully received

    I agree MU it’s a beautiful colour and fragrance I have it and it’s lovely but mine isn’t a standard. Think I will go for a pot then she can plant it out at her own convenience
