Say it With Bare Root Roses

Valentines Day isn’t the only reason to think roses in February.

Depending on where you live, it’s approaching the time to get ready to plant your own bare root roses, which I personally think are the best way to grow roses. Those of us in the South plant in mid- to late February, but check with your local Rose Society for information for your area.

If you need some inspiration, this year's AARS award winning roses for 2009 are Carefree Spirit™, Pink Promise (shown here), and Cinco de Mayo.™ Carefree Spirit is the first landscape shrub to be named a winner.

For suggestions on planting bare root roses, check out these instructions from the AARS.
The American Rose Society is another great source of information, plus they can put you in touch with local Rosarians in your area who'll give you advice.
