I couldn't resist new roses, I know there won't be a FSC sale for awhile, so I can forget about getting much of anything on fortuniana anytime soon. So, I ordered some antique own root roses in 1 gallon pots. Their roots aren't filling the pots or anything, I would guess it'll be at least a month before any of them will need to be transplanted up to a larger pot.

I was thinking that maybe I would keep them potted until they're starting to outgrow a 3 gallon container to make sure they have plenty of roots before I plant them in our nematode susceptible soil. My plan is to put them in a raised bed of about 8" height heavily amended at that point to insure they get a great start before they have to start dealing with nematodes.

Does that sound like a good plan? Any other suggestions?
