My Rose Garden

Hello friends.  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  The weather has been perfect around here.  In fact, this is one of my favorite times of the year.  My roses are in full bloom.  It is a spectacular site.  A bit early for them yet.  I think it is all due to the weather being a bit unstable this year.

The blooms are breathtaking and a much welcomed guest of honor in my garden but I noticed that the stems are not strong enough yet.  I am not sure if it is a lack of sunlight or that we haven't had enough warmth yet for the soil to come up to a temperature where the roots can begin to feed new growth and get healthier again. Whatever the case, I definitely have to keep an eye on them.

Roses are truly timeless.  Romantic, regal and full of wonderful fragrances.  Each year they get even more beautiful.  True loveliness.  This morning, I had the most relaxing time pruning and feeding these beauties.  I also cut a few to enjoy in my home.  Right next to my night stand.   So delicate and romantic.  They just take your breath away.

















































Wishing you a lovely and relaxing Sunday.

Thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to leave me your sweet and kind comments.

Fondly,

Janet

  12. Your roses and the vignette you've set up are so beautiful! I just planted a rose bush that my Mother in law gave me out our new house. It has one bloom on it and is a pretty, light salmon color.

    1. One of the most common rose questions is “how much sun does my rose need?”  Nearly all roses perform best in full sun (more than 6 hours a day), where they are generally happiest and will set the most bloom.  Roses do not grow well in deep shade, where their growth will be leggy and bloom sacrificed.  However, a number of roses can tolerate partly shady conditions (about 4 hours of sunlight a day), including the dappled shade beneath a canopy of trees.

      Roses that tolerate partial shade tend to be closely related to species roses native to forest or thicket habitats.  Once-blooming varieties (such as many Old Garden Roses) are usually less demanding in their light requirements.  Pale or pastel-colored blooms are actually better-suited for a shady display, where they will brighten up a dark corner as opposed to being washed out in the sun.

      Growing a rose in shade represents a certain amount of stress, so take extra care to ensure all other cultural needs are met (adequate water, fertilizer, and proper pruning practices).  If planting beneath trees, make sure to avoid root competition and plant the rose a good distance away from the surrounding trunk.  Drainage is also important, as shady areas are often damp.  There should be no standing water or soggy soil around the base of your rose.

      Shaded roses will grow taller than if they were in full sun, so plan accordingly.  They may also bloom less, which is why prolific bloomers such as floribundas and spray roses perform better than hybrid teas.  On the positive side, both fragrance and bloom last longer in the shade than they do in full sun.

  24. Your roses are stunning! Thank you for sharing them. I have a couple of knockout rose bushes which are not the same thing at all, but maybe one day...though I don't think I would get them as beautiful as yours!
