lasagna method - planting tender roses??
We moved, and our new yard has tree roots and rocks in all the beds. It's nearly impossible to dig.
I have about 30 rose bushes to plant with most of them tender roses. It's too difficult to plant them, and raised beds will take my husband too long. I was thinking of trying the lasagna method.
If I do these are my questions.
1. If I plant the rose through the lasagna layers, the rose will still be on the top of the unworkable soil. How will my roses get down deeply enough to be properly protected for winter? I know the rose and soil would settle, but deeply enough to be winter protected??
2. Would I have to wait until next spring for my soil to be ready?
