    >I am continually propagating every year from "found" roses. I have about 10 small ones to get in the ground this month. I can't seem to stop…I just love roses so much. You have made me curious as to just how many I have too! I think you only have too many if you don't enjoy them anymore!


  4. >You are standing at the precipice of a VERY slippery slope. Roses beget more roses, and more roses develop into pot ghettos. Pretty soon you're up to your hips in roses! Connie
