Planting bare root roses is the best way to go. Planting those full of foliage, buds and blooms is really harder because you are trying not to break something off. Plus a bud and bloom rosebush can easily go into shock and you can lose the blooms and most of the buds. Super Thrive added to the watering in water goes a long way towards preventing shock. For bare root roses, couple the super thrive with moo poo tea and you have an awesome get growing mix!
