  5. Chris, I like your new site and will have to poke around much more. I never have seen much success growing roses and hope this will change someday.
    You are living in AL and I would think the climate in AL is not that different to our climate here in Houston, TX … hot and humid.
    Best Regards and Happy Gardening
