rootstock picture for Josh
I moved my Palatine Queen Elizabeth after she made some good roots of her own. I really like this version of Queen Elizabeth better than others I had previously and she's a good plant on her own roots. Here you can see what remains of the multiflora roots in my fixed up alkaline clay. Two massive multiflora roots fused together and then slowly deteriorated while the smaller roots from Queen Elizabeth grew out. I tried to dig in plenty of redwood and peat to make the multiflora roots happy until the self roots could take over. You had asked about this before and now I have a picture to share. I usually let the rose do this in a pot but on this one, I just tried it in the ground.
