update on 6o year old peace rose

14 years ago

Patience pays! It came home with 5 buds. They bloomed pretty poorly.* as in icky* Of course I should have cut them off. I knew better. Then about a week ago pruned it all back to about 3 ft. and cleaned off all leaves that were looking poorly Nice sturdy all green canes remained. I did the all in one Bayer on the roots and kept watering during out heat wave. Today I see all those neat little fresh buds poking out here and there and no bad stuff happening. Think I was excited before, now I am dancing the happy rose dance. Can hardly wait to see the fall roses on a beautiful clean bush. I held my breath and pretty much took my time, but here comes happiness. (We did it, MOM)
