I just purchased your Campfire Roses and when I got ready to plant the top 2 inches or so in the pot is covered with shelled hazelnut shells. Do I plant these or remove them at planting time? If I leave them in place, do I cover them with dirt? Thanks!


Campfire Rose is one of my favorites! You can knock the shells off before you plant and then use as mulch for the roses in the ground. Or, go ahead and mix the hazelnut shells into the soil and then plant the roses. Either way, they won’t harm the roses. They were used by the grower to help conserve moisture and reduce weeds.
