New rose bed at new house

Well I succeeded in moving all 45 roses to the new house last weekend. One of the beds we put in involved converting a 45x4 foot rock bed into a rose bed. Here are the before and after pics.

The roses aren't really pretty now due to all the cutting back for transplanting in may( I literally cutoff about 10 vertical feet of my Don Juan), but they and the lavender I am underplanting with seem to be doing well.

Its amazing what you can do in a weekend. Moving the rocks to the other side of the sidewalk took forever. Then digging up and moving the roses from the old house to the new one took a while. The don juan about killed me, but that was nothing compared to the 6 year old Lady Banks that I dug up on Sunday and moved.

My back hurts just thinking about it. Congratulations on a job well done.

Yeah, most of the roses are doing great so far, a few are doing a great impersonation of blackspot, though I think they may just be dropping their leaves to adjust to the stress of the move and loss of roots. Probably should have cut some of em back a little more.

Great job! That's a lot of roses to tranplant. I'm with opheliathornvt, my back hurts thinking of all that work. Looks so much nicer with the roses, too.

Wonderful! So now the obvious question -- what will you plant in the rocky border on the other side?

Not anytime soon. We have a bunch of succulents we might plant. The whole front of the house has a bunch of roses as well.

I really like it. Next spring that fence line should be covered in roses.

Awesome! It looks like it'll be amazing when everything has had a couple of years to grow.

Pretty side yard. It needed to be brought to life with your roses.
I have started designing my side yard.

You are amazing to get that all done in one weekend! It looks fabulous, and I hope you post some pictures later when it has filled out and blossomed.

Sheesh! I'm tired just thinking about all that work! It looks marvelous though! Can't wait to see pictures of it in bloom.
