More than anything else I truly enjoy planting and caring for roses. I realize that some pictures show black spot and yellow leaves... one thing I am trying to do is really see which roses are both low maintnance and hardy. So this year I have not sprayed anything yet. I am experimenting to see what works for me!
I am going to use the blog as a report card for all the roses... :)
