This should be on the inside cover of EVERY rose book out there! Why? 'Cuz it's the TRUTH, the whole TRUTH, & nothing but the TRUTH!!
Thank goodness I don't have voles, moles, or ground squirrels. We had mice, until the neighbors cats ate them. It's been no warmer than 30 degrees for the past 2 weeks and all my roses still have their leaves on them! WHAT GIVES!! :D
Dear Ski ing type person
Here is why the leaves are on your rose plants. Go outside and touch them.
They are frozen solid onto the stems. My roses look be you tea full also.
I will go out and take a picture; picture drive on computer is fried though, and it
will be awhile till we can get new one to post pix. it is always SOMETHING.
Its like frozen lettuce in the refrigerator. Green and good looking through the veg bag/draw,
till you get it out and realize "uh oh,ugh". you know its going to defrost and turn into slime.
