I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It was a little too cool here for the swimming pools that usually open up on Memorial weekend. We had a couple mornings of near frost conditions which is unheard of here after the twentieth of May. But we have now went from the cool thirties to the eighties once again and I hope it stays this way now.
Aphids have started attacking the roses by the thousands so I sprayed them with a organic insecticide soap to take care of the tiny varmints.
Fragrant roses the will bloom on 4 to 5 feet climbing canes and is good in zones 4-9.
It has a spicy clove scent and its clusters of blooms will continue throughout the summer. It is hardy in zones 6-10.
“Sunny” Knockout roses are also blooming and unlike the other knockout roses this one does have a scent to it. As all knockout roses do this one will bloom all summer also.
So I am a happy gardener now that the roses are starting to bloom.I am getting new blooms now from the others in the rose garden which I will share as they bloom.
Everyone have a fabulous week and…
