I didn't expect to receive my new David Austin Charlotte own root so soon. I ordered in Mon. 18th, got it on Thursday the 21st. It's been raining cats and dogs here and still is today. Right now I have the rose in a bucket of water, but rain is expected for the next three days. Should I leave it in the bucket? put it in a large pot and cover root system with potting soil temporarily? I don't have a good spot to heel it in, in dirt in the garden.
This is the first own root rose I've ever purchased so I'm a little nervous.
