This is in the “what’s up” category. Out of eleven rose bushes planted (eight last year) all but one made it through our U.P. winter – zone 4 – and are leafing out nicely. John Cabot and William Baffin are climbers that can be left on the trellis, White Meidiland and Fire Meidiland are ground cover roses. All came from Jung. I have to replace one that didn’t look good last year, but Jung is good at replacement My method is to pot them up as soon as I get them and grow them on awhile before planting out. Can baby them a bit that way.
In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
