How Long Can a Rose be Safely Heeled in?
I've bought a bare root rosa primula for one of my raised beds (very long and open bottomed) but don't want to plant it as yet. The raised beds were only installed a year ago and the soil in them settled quite substantially so I'll be topping those up as well as rearranging, and adding to, the planting. This won't be until the spring so I don't want to fully plant the rose, only to have to dig it up come March (weather permitting). Will it be OK to leave heeled in for that length of time?
