What to Expect
If this is the first time your are planting a bare root rose, you may be surprised by their brown roots and dormant stem. However, bare root roses provide the easiest and fastest way of planting roses without the concern of transplant shock.
Bare root roses may appear to be dead upon arrival, but the plants actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive and stressful growth of leaves right after planting.
Bare root roses are the best option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Our bare root roses are fully established plants that meet the highest industry standards. They arrive dormant, which makes them ideal for planting. The roots get to acclimate to native soil, as opposed to the packaged soil. Of course, since they are not in soil when you get them, there's no mess to contend with.
You can plant your bare root roses earlier in the growing season, since there are no leaves to get nipped back by frost. They can typically be planted as early as six weeks before your area's last frost date in the spring and no later than two weeks after that average date. Since they don't have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish faster than those that arrive in containers.
Jackson and Perkins Exclusive Preservation Process
Our roses are maintained in a suspended state of growth utilizing a state-of-the-art wet cooler. By providing a uniform storage temperature just above freezing and employing a fog system to provide a consistent humidity of 100%, we are able to ensure that each of our roses remains fully hydrated and does not come out of its dormancy before leaving our facility. Bare root roses ordered elsewhere often arrive dry and shriveled. Through our exclusive preservation process, Jackson and Perkins is able to provide a fully hydrated premium bare root rose. Prior to entering the shipping container, we carefully wrap the root system to preserve the moisture and to provide a top-quality rose that is in optimal planting condition.
Gold Standard Stamp of Approval
Each Jackson and Perkins rose is individually inspected and graded. Only those roses that meet our standards for shape, viability, fragrance, and disease resistance will receive the Jackson and Perkins signature Metal Tag.
Our Superior Bare Root Rose Growing Process
Our roses are hand budded by professional rose budders to ensure you receive a true-to-variety quality rose. This takes a special skill. These professional hand budders make sure the bud union lives and the rose plant becomes the premium Jackson and Perkins rose variety desired.
At the end of the rose growth cycle, when the rose plant has hardened off and is ready to be harvested, the roses are hand selected according to our top-quality Jackson and Perkins rose standards.
What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.
Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.
