I am looking after my grandmother’s and great grandmother’s heirloom plants, in zone 9 South East Texas where just about everything grows to giant proportions. I am crazy about roses, mostly old garden and cemetery roses, and I get most of mine by rooting cuttings. Old Garden roses are extremely hardy and make few demands on us. Nothing bothers them except bulldozers!
I also protect a number of medicinal plants, weeds and wildflowers. I grow and collect my own medicinals so that quality can be assured, and so that they won’t be easily taken away from me.
This spring, my first ever bluebonnets came up and bloomed! I love Gardenweb, and love to trade and talk about plants! What could be more fun?!
