    Do it now. Before any growth really gets going. Also add some bonemeal -it aids root development

    What have you chosen?

    Hi Rosa they are called Parade i will upload a picture of them later both look very healthy cost £1.99 each so decided to take a chance here's hoping.

    I often take a chance with low cost shrubs - TLC to start with and they usually respond. As they will probably need extra care make sure you add the bonemeal as roses, any way, are hungry plants

    good luck

    Do you have somewhere they can go that isn't as warm as a house? They look a bit forced as if they have been in a shop for a while so need to be slowly introduced to cooler outside temperatures. Perhaps in a garage overnight and outside during the day - as long as it doesn't snowimage But do pt them up.

    I will put them in the shed at night and will bring them out during the day thanks for your help Rosa just back in from our gardening club night.
