Hardly any BS this year

Zyperiris(Seattle)July 5, 2011

Hey folks just thought I would share the news. My rose garden is three years old..and we had a very cool spring..and lots of wet. I have hardly had any BS. I do have it..just not as much as you would expect..and no spray..Also lots of bees

That's pretty awesome! I'm down in SE Portland - I have a few rose areas in my garden: a 4 yr, 3 yr and 2 yr. I'm not seeing much BS, either, despite this miserable spring. However, that might be because I'm taking much better care of them this year! Last summer I was adapting to 1st time motherhood and the poor roses had to fend for themselves...

I have gotten a little yellowing in spots. There was a big bloom about 4 weeks ago and now they've slowed down. I think they'd like more sun but this weekend they're perking up!
