Canadien rose

I had read a post where you are thinking of putting up shelves, and thought you might like to take a look at's called Versalift, if you go on youtube you can find one like it a guy made..just look for attic lift. I don't know if your husband is handy building things or not. I am having mine build one , so I can store my roses in the loft in the garage. To build one would be around $200.
Also I was curious about if you bury your grafts on the roses you have in pots?

Hmmm....that's interesting! We don't have an attic in our garage - but I imagine you could just have it lift them up to whatever height you want - for example onto a shelf. I'm going to show this to my husband. Thank you so much for thinking of me!! :)

As to the grafts - I did at first - but now I don't, and there's no need. Our garage is insulated and we cover with a lot of blankets. Right now there's snow outside - but I've taken off the the blankets from the roses. The canes are such a lovely green color. They are so pretty to me - just the canes alone. :)

Hope your garage lift goes well - and I'll tell my hubby. Thanks!!

I don't really have a loft, it's more a four foot high area over part of the garage. Good thing I am short, but what's a little aching back for more roses. I was just admiring my lovely green canes this past weekend. Did you ever take the temp in your garage this past winter? Mine is insulated on two sides so I think it should work. After looking at your picture of Queen of Sweden I had to have one. Thanks for posting it.
