newbie advice

monkee(MO)May 22, 2008

I have mainly a few shrubs and climber type roses-illusion, new dawn, dortmund, distant drums and a few others.

Since I don't have long stems like I see in most exhibits would a palette work for me?

How do the palettes keep the roses?

Sorry, I'm totally ignorant about all this

open to any and all advice.

You have to know the rules for the pallet, and the rose show schedule will tell you what is allowed. If they allow large-flowering climbers (LCl) or shrubs (S) in the class, then it would be fine. If not, then you cannot enter these roses into the pallet class. Each show is different, so you have to have the show schedule for that specific show.

The pallets have a small flower tube underneath each opening which holds water.

How old is your DD? I have pretty long stems on mine, enough to exhibit in the regular Shrub class.

you might try picture frame also if you have only short stems. I think I may try a picture frame entry at the next show I enter. Sometimes I have beautiful blooms but the stems don't seem long enough.
