My husband is a Senior Chief in the US Navy. August 2007 Uncle Sam moved us to Columbus Ohio (yes there is a Navy base in Columbus) All my years of gardening experience have been in zone 9, Southern California.
I now face the great challenge of learning how to grow roses in zone 5, although I miss my California rose garden, each new experience is an adventure to be enjoyed.
The garden is new and the first roses were planted April 2008, it will be growing steadily as the days go by.
Update; February 8, 2013
My Ohio rose garden is closed - my husband retired from the Navy and we have returned to California. Once we've settled in our new home, we will again have a rose garden and I will start posting again.
