Rose Gardening Secrets Revealed!

March 18, 2015

Hello, welcome to the rose gardening newsletter.

Issue #0017

If you are new to rose gardening, I would like to tell you that gardening organically is a better way to grow your roses! It is not only a safer approach for both you and your family, but also for the wildlife that live in and around the garden!

I personally don't think I'll be out doing much in MY garden for a while....

Take a look..... I wanted to share these photos (taken today)

This is the arbor that looks into the gardens! The snow is still so deep, I can't even get out to it yet! The bottom of the picture is the driveway. As you can see, you have to climb over the snow banking to get in to the garden, which still has about a foot of snow! Well... at least the driveway is finally bare! Even the garden shed is not ready for spring!
