Bareroot, Own Root & Container

World's Finest Roses
Have you browsed through your favorite gardening catalog or website looking for the newest roses to plant in your garden and wondered whether it would be best to choose bareroot roses or those in nursery pots? Or does it matter? If you’re like most rose gardeners, this question has come up at one point or another. And we want to help you find the answer as to what’s the best for you and your garden.


Bareroot Roses

Bareroot

Bareroot roses are an inexpensive and easy option for early-season planting. In fact, late winter is the best time to plant. Bareroot roses 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. And of course, since they aren't in soil when you get them, there’s no mess to contend with.

Own-Root Rose

Own-root roses are developed by taking a cutting from an existing stock plant, then it's planted directly into the soil. This type of rose is the same variety above and below the ground. They are easy to plant, typically hardier in colder climates, and can produce more shoot and blooms for the variety than if it was traditionally grafted or budded.

Bareroot roses will have brown roots and dormant stems when they arrive. Plants that arrive this way actually have the advantage of being able to focus their energies on strong root development rather than having to support an extensive growth of leaves during planting.

You can plant your bareroot or own-root roses earlier in the growing season as well, since there aren't any 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. Since they don’t have to provide water to leaves or flowers, they usually establish quickly.

Container

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 decorative containers and make an attractive gift. All of our potted roses are own root, unless otherwise noted.


As you can see, there are advantages to both bareroot and container roses, so whichever you decide is the best for your garden, we feel certain you’ll become a lifelong rose lover, if you aren't already!

24 Burgundy Iceberg Roses
Rose beginner from NE wrote (October 16, 2015):
In a mass planting next to the patio wall, these roses are amazing. The deep burgundy wine color and delicate fragrance are wonderful. These roses grew very fast this first year and were covered with roses from late June until frost. Daily removal of the spent flowers encouraged the blooming.
A great border of 24 roses
Retired and playing in the garden! from NE wrote (September 28, 2015):
These roses are very vigorous. They have bloomed all summer and are still loaded with deep burgundy roses with white highlights at the end of September. They are wonderful in a mass. These were purchased this spring in the pots and planted the same day they arrived. They are two feet high and wide now and full of blooms and buds. Visitors to my back patio say "Wow!" when they see them.

Pat from VA wrote (March 21, 2015):
This rose was just received mid March. It was it beautiful shape with leaves and already flowering. Only problem is that the flowers have no fragrance and are white with tinge of pink. Once I can put it in the ground, I will watch to see if these attributes(color and fragrance)change, if not I will be disappointed for that is why I asked for this as a gift.
tough little rose
Grace from PA wrote (June 18, 2014):
This rosebush was able to survive a colder than normal winter in Pennsylvania. This little floribunda is the first of my rosebushes to start blooming (this year it started blooming mid June) and typically keeps up into August. I only gave the rose 4 stars because I thought the rose would be purple as shown on the website. It is NOT purple. It is a very nice dark pink/red/maroon color. If you love dark colored roses that are early bloomers and can ride out rough winters without winterizing then this is the rose for you.
Late Spring
Karen from MN wrote (October 27, 2013):
The day I recieved my roses this year we had nine inches of snow. It snowed into early May in Minnesota this year. Was very hard to judge when to put the roses out. Especially when they were delivered in the Middle of April. I did happen to lose this rose to frost in May but my others I bought survied. I just wish the roses could of been delivered a little later.
Great Performer

I bought three Burgundy Iceberg five years ago, and am placing an order for two more now to fill in where my tired butterfly bushes are. Although not as purple as shown in the catalog, the flowers are beautiful and even in my high desert climate they blossom from early summer until late in the fall.

Back to Gardening Tips





Anyone can grow roses - all that's needed is a spot with 6 hours of sun a day. Roses are even well suited to container growing, so you don't have the excuse of no garden space!

STEP 1

If planting bareroot roses, first soak roots in lukewarm water for 12 to 24 hours. If you can’t plant your roses right away, you may leave them in their boxes for up to a week in a cool, dark place. Be sure to sprinkle roots with water every few days.

STEP 2

Dig a hole about 12" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it’s large enough to give the plant’s root system plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides with your shovel.

STEP 3

Traditional images for the holiday season: Poinsettias, pine cones, red berries, and glittering silver balls! It can be transplanted outdoors after the holidays, where it can grow to 14 feet high!

Dig a hole about 12" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it’s large enough to give the plant’s root system plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides with your shovel.

STEP 3

Fill the hole with water. It should drain in one hour. If the water remains longer, dig deeper to improve the drainage – or mound your soil and plant the rose in a raised bed.

STEP 4

Build a mound in the center of the hole to support roots. Set rose on top, making sure the crown (the point where the canes join together at the shank) is at ground level, or a little lower in cold climates.

Fill the hole with two thirds of the remaining soil mixed with peat moss or compost. Tamp down gently with your hands. Add water, let it soak in, then finish filling the hole with soil. Tamp down lightly and water well.

Your plants will leaf out faster if you mist the canes as often as possible while they’re getting started. Roses need plenty of moisture both above and below the soil to develop fully.

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.

Due to the nature of plants and the fact that some are younger than others, there will be some variance in the size of our bareroot roses. However, they have all gone through the same quality inspections in order to make sure they meet the high standards we expect from all of our roses.

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.
