Rose Show tomorrow, what roses to bring?
The Greater Atlanta Rose Show is tomorrow. Our area has been experiencing some strange weather this spring. Much cooler and wetter than normal. The rain is always welcome, but this may have been a bit too much in a short period. Many of my roses have not bloomed yet (when usually we have the first flush in early April)
So my question is, what to bring? Or more importantly, what do I cut tonight? Buds that are just opening, buds where the sepals are open, but not the petals, fully open blooms? I'm a novice exhibitor, and I did see the first show I was at last year that the stage of the bloom is very important. I was thinking to bring in what looks best and hopefully they will open overnight if I keep my house a little on the warm side.
