Raised Bed # 1 – March 2010
This bed is now planted with 4 floribunda’s:
2 – Julia Child (pictured. May 2010)
2 – Moondance
This is the second of my 3 bed project.
This bed has been planted with the following new roses:
2 – Marilyn Wellan, Hybrid Tea
1 – Hot Princess, Hybrid Tea
1 – Louise Estes, Hybrid Tea
1 – L.D. Braithwaite – David Austin
The hybrid tea roses planted in this bed are exhibition roses.
I purchased them from K and M Roses, Buckatuna MS.
At ever rose show I have seen, at least one of the top 3 roses at the show was one of these varieties. I will call this my exhibition bed. They are grafted on fortuniana rootstock, which is supposed to be better in our climate. These are the first roses I have owned on this rootstock and I am anxious to see how they will do this winter.
I have one more bed to construct and hope to have it filled by the end of the month.
Have not decided what roses I will place in that bed.
My neighbor stopped by today and said “you have really transformed your backyard into a rose garden.” It was the nicest compliment I have heard in a long time…..
