Bon Chance,Chere! I hope you are moving to an area way up the penisula so your roses can avoid hurricanes( and you,too). Unless you lived in Grand Isle or Fourchon, then I guess any place in FLA except for the keys would be better protection

Good luck and Congrats on the new job! Are you taking any of your old garden with you or starting fresh?? Miami has the disinction of being the first Florida town I got lost in - there is probably a sign on the spot...

Good luck on your move,buddy.Hope everything goes smoothly.
As far as roses go-make haste slowly.Look the local situation over carefully as far as nematode problems,thrips,nurseries,water restrictions and you may decide that some of the semi-tropicals make more sense.The only reason I grow roses here is they do very well,if not we would plant something else.
My area is micro-climate controlled by the ocean.Just a few miles inland it gets much hotter in summer,colder in winter.As it is we have nearly perfect weather for roses.Also we have beach sand soil,which is alkaline-inland its acidic soil from the eons of marsh stuff rotting.They are restricted by nematodes to a few antiques or fortuniana rootstock.We aren't.
My pointless point is that to grow any plant where it doesn't want to be doesn't make a whole lot of sense IMHO.lol

Congrats on the new job and good luck in the future. You should look up Pandy in the Antique Rose forum since she grows lots of roses in Miami. A good resource for growing in the area and a really great person too!

I'm late to chime in here, but welcome to our part of the world. I too am in South Florida. Growing roses is not easy here, but what is a garden without roses.
My divorce was the start of my 'happy life.' I hope yours is too.
