I've loved to garden ever since I was a child, and roses have always had a special place in my heart. Growing roses in Northern Michigan can be a challenge, but two simple tricks that have made a big difference for me are to plant the roses deeply (bud union 3-4" below ground level) and to pick hardy roses. I grow about 180 roses, and especially love the David Austin roses for their fragrance and form.
What a lovely garden, Karen, thanks so much for sharing it with us, its "picture perfect"
