It's been just under five weeks since I received these roses in the mail. If you're considering ordering roses from the EuroDesert sale of mother plants, worried that it might be risky to ship bare root roses in the heat of summer, let my results calm your nerves. I am super excited with how these roses have progressed, and I can't wait until the rest of them bloom.
