Question about ARE roses
I've been wondering this for awhile and decided to post this question to the forum. The roses I receive from ARE are always leafless and it sometimes takes a couple weeks (or more) for them to leaf out. They remind me of bareroot roses, but of course they are potted. Roses I get from other nurseries such as Chamblees, Vintage, RU, etc are leafed out when I receive them.
Anyone know why ARE roses are different? Are they grown in fields instead of greenhouses? I know next to nothing about the nursery industry and am curious about how different roses are grown for sale. I did ask someone at ARE once but didn't get a clear answer.
Thanks for any info you have on this.
