Hello:
I am looking for rooted cuttings of Grand'Mere Jenny. If you still have this rose could you possibly sell me three rooted cuttings? I will pay for the rooted cuttings and also for shipping. Thank you. Margaret

I noticed you're growing some hybrid teas in zone 6.  I too live in zone 6 and have ordered my first round of HT's (double delight, mister lincoln, broadway, and queen mary II).  Do you have any recommendations for these?  I order three of each, so they'll be grouped together.


Many thanks,


Alison

Hi - I don't know if a lot of people would agree with my methods but so far, I've had pretty good luck with the way I plant and care for my roses. I start all of my roses in a pot and some may stay in pots for several months, depending on how large they are. I try to buy own root plants when I can but do have several grafted plants. When I'm ready to plant them, I dig the hole about a foot deeper than the roots and then back fill the hole with well rotted horse manure. I fill it just deep enough to be able to set the potted plant down in the hole (removed from the pot, of course) and then finish filling in around it with more rotted horse manure. If it is an own root plant, I try to plant it at the same depth that it is growing in the pot, but if it is a grafted plant, I put the graft a couple of inches below the surface. After they are planted, I use Weed Barrier around the plants and then cover with a good layer of mulch. I have had very little trouble with winter kill. Hope this helps.

Lobo,


Many thanks for your help and advice. I planned to plant a border of roses around the back yard, but I've been watching and along one fence row the area stays shaded for the majority of the day--quite the dilmena. Any advice on this?


Also, I transplanted some climbers from a friend's yard who changed their mind about growing roses. One is a Zephrine Dou...(? on the spelling). I had to prune it to a little over a foot in order to move, but it has a lot of canes (although they're all rather thin). Will pruning a climber that heavily damage the plant?


Thanks again,


Alison

Hi,

I apologize for the delay in answering. Lots of overtime at work and not getting much computer time right now. I Most roses require at least 6 hours of sunlight to do well, so that might pose a problem with your backyard. Some will tolerate shade better than others but would still need some sun. As for pruning the climbers, depending on whether that particular plant blooms on new or old wood, it might be lacking in blooms the following season, but shouldn't kill it.

Thanks!

Lobo,

Thanks for your help. I'll have to wait for spring to try and figure out exactly what type of climber they are in order to tell.

Thanks again,
Alison

Lobo, I would like to know if you have a hybrid tea rose "St. Exupery" aka Waltz Time for sale. The web site "help me find a rose" says you might. I am willing to pay a good price for two. Thanks, Janell 5/8/07

Have you started pruning yet? Also, what is your schedule for this time of year?
