Raised bed for bare roots
Well well it's bareroot rose season again. As usual I have ordered more roses than I have the time to plant before the "hell temperatures" arrive in North Texas. I have a couple bare roots that should arrive any time soon. For the curious Mollineaux and Marchessa Bocella (not bare rooted from ARE).
I plan to use a cedar raised bed kit that is 10 inches deep.Will I have enough depth if I clear the grass and plant them only in the amended garden mix and compost that I normally use? Or will I actually have to dig into the Earth to at least 8 inches making a total of 18 inches deep?
Please tell me nice things :-) :-) I garden in Texas clay. And I have 8 more roses to plant. I will place the others in the ground no problems. These will be potted from ARE. But I have to hurry with the bare roots because of our crazy quick warm up in Texas. Much thanks and Happy Rose gardening!!!
