I would be remiss if I didn't mention it's bare root time!The above pic reminded me of it. We bought this beautiful rose last year and not only does it look outstanding (no two roses alike), it also smells like apple! As we learned, you miss bare root time and it's over and you will have to wait until next year's bare root time.

It is an extremely short time to get roses, fruit trees and berries in bare root stock. Usually by February the bare root stock are pretty much gone and aren't coming out until next year.

All plants come with planting instructions but the most important thing to do is soak your bare root plant in a bucket of water overnight to plump up the roots.

So start looking for the bare roots and we bet you see them all over, even at the grocery store!
