They don't look like much, and yet, just picking up the box from the post office made me grin with excitment. What can elicit such emotion? Why my bare rooted roses of course, ordered over two months ago. They're now soaking in a bucket of water with some seaweed emulsion to stimulate root growth before planting. I've got six new ones to plant and a freebie for good measure. So now I've just got the hard bit - digging and improving the soil for my newest beauties.
