The BEST Rose Year...yet!
I am writing to thank you all for your expert advice on planting roses. As I explained in one of my previous posts, I lost about 40 roses due to an usual winter frost in Seattle about two years ago. I was really heartbroken. :(
This year, we had our backyard landscaped. I followed the instructions for planting/re-planting roses based on your suggestions. What a wonderful show of color it has been in our garden! All of the roses are healthier than ever. We planted the roses deeper in the soil and mercilessly pruned some of them. Every single rose has bloomed beautifully and they are thriving. Knock on (rose) wood!
I am a bit scared of the upcoming fall/winter season because of the past experience. But I have a feeling that they will survive the winter.
Thank you folks for imparting your expertise and knowledge with novice gardeners like me. :)
