I grow about 125 roses, mostly older roses. I like Hybrid Musks, Noisettes, older HTs with fragrance. I live near Berkeley, CA and my home sits on a small urban plot of just under 5000 sq ft. The challenge is to grow plant material that I love, have fragrance and manage my garden.
I live with three Siberian Huskies that at anytime of day or night may chase squirrels, raccoons, possums, rats or skunk. This means that canes may be damaged, companion plants trod on, etc. The dogs and I have many conversations on treating my garden nicely. I am about 50% in the win column.
Gardening in Northern California is a dream, even in the rainy season.
I live in: United States
My zone is: NoCa 9a
