2 Questions on Roses
I have several roses in pots that were stored in the garage over winter. Some of them may be able to manage in the ground with good protection now that they are bigger. They are:
Gruss an Aachen FL
Distant Drums Buck
Rio Samba HT
Beauty Secret Mini
Does anyone have experience with any of these in the ground??? They can stay in the pots if they are too tender but if a few of them can manage in the ground I can use the pots for something else.
Although the spring order is done and I have lots coming already I know those impulse buys are still going to be a reality...lol. So for a small cutting garden what would you recommend in HT's and Floribunda's that can survive winter with good protection and rebound well. Can we make a list of the ones that do well for you so I can take it with me. Criteria would be:
decent life span as a cut flower
good fragrance hopefully
any colour except white
I have Double Delight and Mr Lincoln coming already at hubby's request. Was thinking they would have to be potted but maybe someone here grows them successfully in the ground.
thanks a bunch
