Growing Roses in My Utah Garden

By Paul2032
February 10, 2013

Roses are considered to be challenging by many gardeners, but here in Utah I have found their care to be quite easy. The rewards during bloom season far exceed the effort needed in order to have a lovely rose garden. A near perfect bloom brings me great pleasure.

Your roses are just beautiful.

I think I'm a fickle gardener too but it seems you've definitely found your passion.

I've never grown roses this gorgeous.

Thanks Vic....my current passions are roses, iris, and hosta. At this point in my life I had better be happy with those three.
