Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Gracye On May 8, 2011, Gracye from Warrenton, VA wrote:

I received my "own Root" cutting two weeks ago. It came in a 6" long, slim plastic pot. It was tiny, honestly. I planted it a week ago, in a well-fortified "hill" that has newly planted compact boxwoods on either side. I went on vacation for four days, this afternoon came home and had to pinch a big bud off! It is extremely healthy, has alot of new growth, and I will NEVER buy another grafted rose. Nosiree. Expect miniscule size compared to the honkin' grafted varieties, but "own root" just makes a ton of sense. No weak grafted spots to worry about, no suckers of another variety, no virus or other problems at all, and health that is unbelievable. I have high hopes for my Penny Lane, and it is proving to climb over them! HAHA!
