|Growing on top of the ground.|
This month should be clean up month in the south. You northern friends may have too much snow still. Cut rose bushes and build new flower beds, so they will be ready in spring for planting. Rose growers cut back you roses to no more than one foot. Carrel won't do this so the ones that grow extra tall I go behind him and cut off some more. Just as soon as your leaves on you roses start to bud out you should start spraying for black spot. I am really looking forward to spring time and my roses. Next month you fertilize. Start exercising so you won,t be so sore during planting time. I hope this has been a helpful blog page. I thank you for watching my garden grow and bloom, hope you will grow one of your own. Happy gardening to you from Carrel and I, Juanita.
