They are growing! It’s working! The pink rose bush released a flush of roses today after only having one or two flowers, which I had cut for my desk. It’s gotten much bigger than it was only a week ago. I wasn’t sure if it would work in the spot because it isn’t getting as much sunlight as it would have if it were put in the yard, but it seems to be doing nicely. In another month or so, I’ll know about the other two breeds, which do appear to be budding and sending up new leaves so I’m optimistic. We’re up to 18 rose bushes now, but only 5 varieties. I need more variety. I need a greenhouse. That way, I can grow them in the winter, too.
If I lived in some giant gothic mansion, I’d grow Black Baccara roses and make people think the Adams family lived there. Although, I think the real Adams family would go more for the creepy plants on this list.
I need a rose farm. I’m going to have too many to use myself in 2-3 years. Maybe I can convince my friends and family to come get fresh supplies of roses all summer? I don’t know. I’ll figure out something to do with them. If I ever move, I plan on taking cuttings from the rose bushes so that way, the same plants will follow me through the rest of my life.
