I was up in the Biltmore Walled Rose Garden recently and saw a really neat way fashion a trellis for a climbing rose. It allows complete control over where the canes can be trained. It might not be the best way for every trellis but where appropriate it’s a great idea!
You should always soak your bareroot roses after they arrive. The question is for how long? We have the answer in this Rose Care Quickie.
Spring is around corner and I was finally able to get in and get my gardens cleaned and mulched with the help of the folks from J.A. Landscaping. It also gave me a chance to share some quick thoughts with you about mulch. Enjoy!
