I have been growing roses for a good number of years. Here is some advice for planting new roses where you are batteling furry critters.; dig a hole and line it with avion wire (found at any farm or garden center) , then pour your mixture of soil and systemic to form a mound , then spread the roots over the mound and pack the rest of the soil mix over roots leaving the root ball exposed ( unless you live where you have freezing temp. during the winter) . I have been giving successful gardening advice to friends from San Diego, CA. to Kingston, WA. Thanx , for reading , The "Garden Lady of Avila "

Oh perfect hint! Fantastic help for my roses. I am going to order a new rose from
Heirloom roses this year, and plant it in a cage of wire exactly like you
recommended. I guess you mix the systemic right in with the soil then, not just
on the top of the soil. Sounds like a better plan!!!

We have below zero sometimes here, and I keep the root areas covered with
hardwood mulch for air.

Thank you so much for reading my story and writing to me, I appreciate both.
