I have been growing roses for about ten years. Started with the EarthKind and Knockout varieties. They did so well. And i enjoyed them so much, I have become a collector of sorts. I aim for a nice landscape, but I really just grow grass, a few trees, and roses!! some companion plants and herbs. .................................................

I have enjoyed the tea class very much! And also David Austins, where I have a dedicated bed, and enjoy being able to cut roses for the table. .................................

My tastes have changed over the years, and although I have a semi-firm committment to just growing what will grow here in Texas....I will work with some more difficult roses IF they present a novelty I enjoy....either great history, great beauty, etc.
.................................I WOULD LOVE TO MEET MORE ROSARIANS IN THE DALLAS AREA, AND EXCHANGE ROSE CUTTINGS AND EXCESS INVENTORY!!!............................................................................................................................................
