Thanks so much. This is an inspiring article. All things that most of us who have been growing rose for years already know but it's good to be reminded. Plus, it reinvigorates us for the Spring. I personally cannot wait! Happy growing!

i received my 1st rose from my now new boyfreind 3 weeks ago, although the flower has dried up the stem has started to sprout and i have about 5 sprouts on it plus a nice big nodule at the bottom. my question to you is - how can i successfully plant and keep this precious rose?
i would like to take this opportunity to thank you for any help you may provide :)

Since I have never sucessfully rooted a rose, I feel a little out of my league with your question. There are a number of threads on rooting roses on in the 'Prop & Swap' forum. They are friendly bunch and I'm sure someone would have your answer. Until then just keep doing what you're doing as it seems to be working.
Best of luck

Try the following: Prepare a jar of water into which you put cuttings from fresh willow branches. Cut one or more sections of 4-5 inches from the stem, including each time an eye (i.e. a section where the stem branches off). Place the cut rose sections into the jar for one day. Then plant them about 2 inches deep into small containers. Best is a mixture of soil and perlite (from the garden shop). Keep slightly moist, but not too much, more on the dry side. Then keep your fingers crossed!

I have heard that there was a rose named after Sir Harry Secombe, is this correct and if so, what type of rose is it and waht is it's name?

it's a pleasure to have found your page!! so many helpful informations. - i'm about to start a new garden and I'm looking forward to have ramblers on the brickstonewalls, which do fence my garden.

- how can i define the zone where i live in - to find the perfect roses? - i do live in Berlin, Germany, and the climate here is as much as the soil not really perfect for roses, as far as i know.

i'd be thankful for any info, what zone I'm living in here.

many thanks, penelope

Hi Penelope:

Your zone is determined by where you are located.  If you are in the United States, you can do a web search for Department of Agriculture Plant Hardiness Zones.

Hi Penelope,
I had a similar problem as I also don't live in USA. I found this chart

It lists the minimum average temp of cities around the world. Using these values I calculated your average minimum temp as 5.1 degrees .

According to that puts you in zone 7a/7b I assumed the temperature was not celcius or you would be in Hawaii-type climate!

Help that helps:) Kim

Penelope, on this link, you will find a map of the climate zones in Germany. Accordingly, Berlin is in Zone 7b, its surroundings in 7a.

You will also find a lot of information on roses if you follow the link to the Gartenforum.
