English Roses 2007

Today I received my 2007 rose order from David Austin! I went with two yellow roses, Molineux and Golden Celebration, because I wanted them to coordinate nicely with the sea of lantana in the front bed. I'm trying to stick with a yellow, pink, and purple color pattern.
I plan to put them in the ground on Saturday. For now, I'm leaving them wrapped in the plastic with plenty of humidity to keep the roots moist. Friday night I'll soak them in a tub of water so the plants are nice and hydrated before planting.
I prepared the soil back in the fall because I knew where I was going to plant them. I might add a little bit more compost to the soil before I dig the holes.
More photos to come!
