Great! So far that's my plan after doing a lot of reading. Despite their reputation for being prima donnas, roses seem to be essentially tough creatures. I can't wait to see the results. I know that one is an Abraham Darby shrub rose - a beautiful peachy pink that does well in this zone. I have the highest hopes for this one! The only other one I've identified is an Honor - a long-stemmed white rose the prefers a colder climate. The rest are: 1 deep coral, 1 red, and 1 that didn't blossom.

Give them a good pruning, down to about a foot from the ground, mulch around the base, fertilize them with a good rose fertilizer, remove any moldy leaves from the ground around, and spray with an insecticidal soap. You will have new roses next summer!

Life is not about waiting for storms to pass. Life is about learning how to dance in the rain.

Does anyone have roses? What sort of care do you give them? I have three neglected rose bushes in my yard and I hope to nurse them back to health. I read a book on rose care and the poor things seem to have every disease or pest in the book!
