Hi all...new to the mini forum! Live in Ky and last year I planted Maya..three in between my Evelyn and Iceburg. They already have green leaves and look good so far. I chose these because one of my grandchildren is named Maya. I have been trying to find one named Madeline and found a few but would appreciate any advice on where to order. One grandaughter is named Evelyn(Evie) and am wondering if I should place a small trellis on each mini..or should I just leave them alone.
Also, the flower bed needs new weed protective matting and I'm not sure if that will in anyway harm the roses planted there. If I am careful around the bases will that be okay? I really have no choice as the weed killers fail to do the job usually. It isn't a large bed and is beside the front porch. New at most of this and just started planting about 2 summers ago. So far my Austins are doing great! At present there is mulch around each bush.Do I wait to fertilize until after the first flush?
I'm interested in finding an Alexander also(grandson) but do not think there are any in the mini roses.
Any advice on companion flowers around these roses would be appreciated also. Last year I planted a bluish purple bush..2 of them and now I can't remember the name of it but saw it on the rose forum as being a great bush for a companion to roses. It grows along the ground and blooms constantly..however..quite small so far.
Thanks so much!
