Tina and I struck out for Jemison, Alabama early this morning to attend an Antique Rose seminar sponsored by “Petals From The Past”, a garden shop specializing in Antique Roses and old fashioned Perennials. Most of his roses are “own root”, none of which are Hybrid Teas….
My thanks to Jim, The Gaudy Gardener, whose blog has inspired me to look further into growing these beautiful roses.
Jason Powell, our speaker and proprietor of Petals From The Past, gave a wonderful seminar and we learned so much about growing antique roses. We even bought a couple to get us started: “Swamp Rose” and “Mutabilis”.
Can’t wait to get these in the ground.
