Roses Are Plants, Too.©

We here at Paul Zimmerman Roses are dedicated to making sure everyone knows how easy and rewarding Garden Roses are to grow. We’ve realized over the years many people tried growing roses in their garden and either gave up or simply didn’t want to try in the first place. If you are among them you’ve come to the right place. You see, we have a very simple philosophy;

A Rose Is Nothing More Than A Flowering Shrub

That’s right, we believe Garden Roses should be grown like any other flowering shrub in your garden and we are dedicated to teaching you how. We have many ways to do this so take a little time to explore them all including our discussion forum.  As you do so you will also find quite a few videos showing you many aspects of rose care from pruning, to pegging, to planting and more.

Roses Are Plants, Too.© — 41 Comments

  1. I’m looking for a SC nursery that sells Dr. Huey…I think it is a wonderful “wild rose”!

    • Thanks, that helps. I would cut them off. The plant does not have enough root system to sustain those yet. Cutting them off will allow the rose to focus on roots and then it will send out tops when it’s ready.

  2. I bought a bare root rose (floribunda) that has new growth and flower buds. Should I cut them off as they have wilted since planting.

    • Where they there before planting or did they grow out afterward?

  3. My name is Tammy and I am a beginner with growing roses. I actually dug up a rose bush from a former residence and tried to transplant to my new home. Needless to say, it’s not going well :( I think it is dead but not sure. I would love to try to save it. I have had to prune almost all the way down to the base and I don’t see anything green. My question is can I save this plant with just roots? I have an amazing green thumb with everything I’ve encountered . I have brought many plants back to life and grow a beautiful vegetable garden. But when it comes to this plant, I’m stumped! Please help!

    • Hi Tammy, you’ve done everything right so I think it’s a matter of waiting to see if it does grow back. It could take a month or more and if you are still under winter, even longer.

  4. Oh, I’m so glad to have at last found you! You’re the straight talking, make-it-simple and don’t be afraid voice that I dreamed of! I stumbled upon your YouTube intro, have since seen them all and now can’t wait to read through the website and start asking questions! Thank you for being here!

    • My sisted just bought me this rose for my birthday. We were lucky enought to find it at rainbow gardens in San Antonio Texa
