Matt and I will be moving back to California soon (August).
Some of you may recall I dug up 20 some roses and brought them with me when we moved from Ca to Ohio 3 years ago.
I have made the heartbreaking decision not to move any roses back to Ca with me.

As far as I know California does not have Japanese beetles. I do not want to go down in Rose History as the one who introduced Southern California's largest infestation of JBs in 100 years.

If you live in or near Columbus and would like some free roses please contact me and we can set up a time over the next couple of weeks for you to come and pick them up (or dig them up).
I have some that are still in pots and many, many more in the ground.
I have about 30 empty pots you can use if you want to dig up a rose.

All it will cost is a little time and digging, plus I may ask that you sign adoption papers, which would require you to send periodical photos of my babies.

Before you ask, I can not mail any roses... we just don't have the time for that.
I'll be posting a list of what is available soon.

For now - here is a list on HMF (that probably needs updating)

Well we are renting here and I hate to leave 60 roses behind in a rental house, it will only be a bother for the landlord and most likely for the next person who lives here.
I had always planned to take a good amount with me when I left. I never expected to move back to California... Kentucky or Tennessee was more in our plans. Plans change, I'd like someone who loves rose to enjoy them.
If you know of anyone - send them my way
Cheers

dovey, so sorry to hear you are leaving Ohio (and your roses) but I know you will be happy to get back to CA. It seems like you just moved here...? Are you heading to San Diego now?

If you are still looking for a home for your roses, I would love to adopt a few for you. I can come and pick them up in a couple of weeks, if that's convenient.

LMK how things are going for you. t.

Hi, Dovey:

I will be in Wadsworth, OH in the middle of July for a daylily convention. I would love to adopt coupl eof your "babies", if it is not too late. I too grow mostly heirloom and old garden roses and have a dozen rugosa hybrids.

I moved to Illinois from Ohio 9 years ago. I still miss some of the plants in my old house, especailly old garden varieties passed on from other gardeners that I have not been able to find commercially.

Tomorrow morning I will post a list and people can place dibs on what they want and give me a date when they can come by and pick them up.


Being a Navy wife - I've grown used to having to leave some things behind.
Where ever we live Matt encourages me to garden as if we will live there forever.
I eases my sorry to give them away when we leave.

I wish I could offer to mail them - but it's just not possible.

phurst,
We are about 2 hours from Wadsworth, OH. Mid-July is fine we can set up time between now and July 23rd. After that things get crazy and it would be very difficult.

Dovey, I'm so sorry to hear that you are moving again. :( I didn't even get to meet you!

I'm also sad to hear that you will leave your roses behind. I know how you love them.

When I moved, I brought almost everything with me but of course I only moved 40 miles. I couldn't see leaving THAT many plants behind for a new homeowner that might possibly hate my gardens and till them under. I've hear of it happening too many times.

My husband has had two calls about a job in Groveport, OH which I believe is near Columbus. I wish the call him for an interview already! I'd love to meet you before you move and maybe even adopt some roses. I only have two and apparently one reverted to the root stock. :(

I would love to come up and get some of your roses. I live in Somerset, KY. I moved from Calif last Aug. I had to leave all my plants in Calif I gave them away. Now I own property here and am re establishing my garden here. And I need some roses. I can not come up until the 22 of July. I will check back with you the week before to see if there are any roses left. I love the English roses, rugosas and OGR. I love that Bishop's Castle. I've always wanted one of those.

Oh, my! Dovey, what a collection! So lovely, all of them!

What can I 'trade' with you that you might want/need for your new place?! I'll d-mail you for details.

I remember when my DH was in the Navy (beginning in 1971~~before your time!) and we moved every year or so cross country or abroad following whatever ship he was deployed with. Parting was such sweet sorrow, but always an adventure ahead. The life of a Navy wife~~and they (you) deserve lots of credit and respect.

And so I wish you 'fair winds and following seas', as they say! (And lots of good gardening in CA!) t.

Just so I don't go crazy Matt has suggested that I handle this like a yard sale "The 1st to arrive, gets 1st choice."
I don't know how else to handle it and think it's a good idea.

I am keeping a list of who wants what - but only as a general guide.

Send me a Dmail and I'll send you my phone numbers and address.
You may call before you come to make sure what you want is still available.

As a rose is dug up and riding down the road in the back of someone's car or truck I will post here that it's gone.
Until you come and get it (I'm sorry to say) you may loose what you have dibs on.

Most of these rose are large, a truck (or a touch of Houdini magic) may be necessary to transport them.

The good thing is that it's coming up on JB season and trimming them back - way back, isn't gonna do anything to harm them, I often do that in July anyway.

Matt is on leave until we move, with a few exceptions, our schedule is open weekdays and weekends up until July 20th or so.

Dove, due to my car accident I may not be able to make it to Ohio to get the roses. My car goes in for repair on July 19th. The insurance company of the guy who hit me is getting me a rental car on the 19th. Depends on whether they will let me take the car out of the area I may be able to make it up on the 20th. I'm trying to get someone to take me up there sooner, but so far no luck. I'll keep in touch and let you know if I can make it or not.

We may end up in Fallbrook... there is a house on Poets Square, not sure if it suits us size wise, but I like the small town feel of the community. It all depends on what's available when we get there.
We will be in North County or Temecula because I'll be attending Palomar College in San Marcos.

We'll be staying in a friend's camp trailer on the silver strand (you know between Coronado Island and Imperial Beach) while we search for a house to rent. My rose gardening will be somewhat limited until we own our own place again. (hopefully that will not too far in the future)
The whole move is on a very tight time line as we are leaving here about Aug 13th and my 1st class is Aug 23rd.

My major is Art History, I hope to transfer to UCSM next year and get my Bachelors from there.
It very exciting to be moving back home and to be starting school again after a 20 year "sabatical" (ha-ha)

We got four out of eight roses in the ground yesterday. We'll get the other ones in the ground today. We're trying to focus on the roses that we actually took out of the ground first. Those that were already in pots will be last.

So far, so good! I'll send you pictures when we're done.

You are welcome to as many as you can carry in your car (truck would be better) but we will work with what you have.
Some of the bigger roses will need to be pruned way back or you're not likely to get more than a couple in the back seat *S*
Not to worry, pruning will help them endure the transplant with greater ease.

Oh melva, I'd planned on get you some cuttings. I'm taking water with me and plastic bags for the cuttings. Anything special you want me to do with the cuttings? What length is best for cuttings for you?

Ok I'll make them longer so you can cut them done to the size you want. When I traveled in Calif and took rose cuttings I cut them long and put them in water for the trip home. That is what I am planning on doing with the cuttings I collect for you. OK?

Matt and Dovey, I got home safely about 8:30 pm. Tired but happy with my new babies. My babies are unloaded, bucketed and wet down. I'll be up early in the morning to start planting. Once again, thank you and I will take good care of your babies, now my babies.

For now I'm going to shower and go to bed.

No there were still a few left. I just couldn't fit any more in the car, but I was sure trying to get all that I could. I got the ones I wanted and some of the others.

Sounds like you hit the motherlode of roses, mart. I'm glad to know you made it up to Dovey's.

Dovey has a perfect property to grow roses~~I wish I could just take it over when she and Matt move back to CA.

We were able to come home with a very nice collection too.

And I bought Dovey's birdbath in her garage sale pre-sale. Lucky me!

And did you see the caboose in the yard next door?? I always wanted one of those~

I hope to have an English rose garden in bloom next June!

Thanks again, Dovey.

Yes I saw the old train caboose next door. The people that own it also own the house Dovey was living in. I agree I loved the house and yard. Hopefully next year my yard will start looking really good.

I have to say... I so enjoyed this saga. I just read from beginning to end. It was so exciting... Will marti001 make it to the roses in time??!! And, a happy ending! All the elements of a good gardening tale. I love it! Dovey, I suppose you're in transit. I'm praying for safe journey and simplicity in the move. God bless you for giving so much happiness away with your roses.

Does it have the classic rose scent? Mine smells just like a rose shower gel that a friend brought from Italy - exactly the same scent! I don't have any other rose with that true "rose" scent.

It smells great! Next year it should be larger bush and more flowers. These roses are getting over the shock of being transplanted in July, so they are just giving me a few flowers at a time. I also have "The Poet" blooming with three blooms and "Clio" has 3 more blooms coming on it. "Lady of the Mist" has one bud getting ready to open. "Summer Snow" has one bloom and 3 buds.

Yes, my adoptees seem to be doing well. I have one that is still sulking a little and thats "Thalia" a climber. I'll have to have a talk with her and see if I can figure out her problem. Maybe she doesn't like the spot I put her, but I thought she would like it because she can climb all over the front fence and give the neighbors a show when she bloomed.

I think climbers are often slower to get established, but I'm sure she will enjoy a little conversation.

Oh my - it did my heart good to see happy blooming roses... I love that my former roses are blooming here and there all over the place.

We settled in Valley Center CA (North San Diego)

What a long (not so strange) but very difficult trip this has been. We are in our house, it has yet to become home, although it's teetering on the brink of homeyness.
Our furniture was delivered just last Friday
We got Internet yesterday
We are not quite 1/2 unpacked (were did we get all this stuff?)
It's my 4th week of school, I'm thinking about changing my major *L*
We may get TV today, I haven't seen "The View" or Wolf Blitzer in ages and I have no idea how things are going in the gulf of Mexico.

Cheers
Dove

On a very happy note: Matt woke me up at 7:00 to see the eagle, sure enough just like we were told she was perched high atop a dead tree. We could see her from our dinning-room window. Nice way to start the day.

dovey, so good to hear from you. Yes your roses are doing great. Lady of the Mist put up a very nice bloom and is growing wonderfully. Thalia sulked for a while but is now putting up new growth. Summer Snow is full of flowers and Maid Marion is starting to put up new buds for more blooms. Callipe have honored me with 8 blooms so far and has 2 new buds on her.

Next year they will all be blooming like crazy and I will be posting pictures of all of them.
