edible companions for roses?
The place came with about 54 roses. I am not so interested in non food crops but they are very beautiful (great scent too) so I was wondering what edible crops can be planted with roses successfully.
So far I have done well with oregano, it acts as living mulch. I also planted lettuces under them, that worked OK too. I planted a tomato near it, bad idea, the rust from the rose attached the tomato and killed it. I have read garlic, and I did plant garlic, but it did not do so well thus far. However, I see some garlic just coming out, about 9 months later....hmmm.
What types of edible companions have you folks paired with roses? what worked?
