have: free roses to pick-up in central il

glassmouse(z5-Cent IL)August 12, 2006

I have some roses to give away to anyone who can come pick them up in the Champaign-Urbana/Bloomington-Normal, IL area. The roses are:

--The Prince

--Yves Piaget

--Hot Cocoa

--also possibly The Fairy

The first three are potted and were ordered from Keith's Krazy Garden Shed (so OK, but not the best quality, maybe). I also don't spray, so they don't look all that great right now, but would probably spring back with someone who will give them more care. "The Fairy" is in pretty good shape, but will have to be dug up. It's a few years old but not very large since it's not getting enough sun where it's planted.

I simply don't have enough full sun in my backyard for roses; I thought the solution would be to have them in pots on my deck, but I'm running out of room to overwinter them in the garage--so I'd be grateful for someone to adopt them before winter sets in!

If Hot Cocoa is still up for exchange, I'm also in CU area and wouldn't mind trying to keep it alive. X)
