Default 3 Peace Hybrid Tea for 3.49 - good deal?

No, this is not SPAM :-)

Wandering through Morrisons yesterday and saw they were selling hybrid tea
roses - 3 for 3.49.

O.K. so it is right at the end of the planting season, and they are
bare(ish) rooted but considering the usual price on the net is around 3-5
per rose they look good value.

I am soaking the roots at the moment as instructed - even though they were
in moist compost surrounded by soft paper and inside an individual plastic
bag so seemed quite moist.

Are these roses cheap because I will lose most of a season while they play
'catchup' - only one has an active shoot growing - or are they a genuine
bargain brought about by bulk buying and packaging the most popular

Anyone else had success/failure with these packaged supermarket roses?


Dave R

P.S. describes as 'fragrant' but only gives them one star
for scent whilst
rates them as 'good fragrance' so how do you know how strong they will smell
before you buy? Should there be a recognised 'star rating' on the packaging?
