Lady Hillingdon is dead. Long live Lady Hillingdon
Well, I went out and checked for known Polar Vortex casualties. I lost several roses...many of which were in pots and small (although some came as two gallon but late in the summer). Lady Hillingdon is dead, dead, dead. Niles Cochet suffered from poor drainage in his pot (kept wondering what that horrid smell was). Francesca just died.
Looks like the more established in-ground teas did alright. The 1G teas/noisettes I kept in the garage until they started pushing growth and it warmed up outside.
What a winter...
Zephirine is pushing lots of new buds...so are Felicia and many others...
My bareroot order is coming next week so I am trying to prep for that. The majority are classic HTs going into 3 raised cutting beds I prepared in the fall.
How is your garden doing?
