Can you make a hedge out of roses?


Roses can make beautiful hedges but the variety must be chosen with care. The rose must be hardy, disease resistant, repeat flowering and have lots of foliage. Tall 5 foot bushes should be planted 3 feet appart and medium bushes 3 1/2 feet tall , planted 1 1/2 feet appart. Maintenance is simple, deadhead in summer and prune ( if needed) in winter.
