     Hi Everyone,

    I have just bought two Bare Rooted Hybrid Tea Rose Bushes Mail Order, They seem perfect but one bush has only one main stem and the other just two stems both quite short. In particular for the rose with only one stem, how will I manage to create a meaningful bush with just this one stem, is it even possible or will I have to take training steps and wait for many growing seasons? I just want to know before I get my hopes up expecting two mature Rose Bushes from these two plants next year summer?

    One is called Superstar (orange blooms) The other is Prima Ballerina, (pink blooms).

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, Thanks,

    When you plant roses you cut them back to 6 inches above the ground this encourages the rose to sprout from the  base.Plant the roses to the same depth they were in the field. You can see this on the stem.
