Conventional wisdom advises plenty of space between rose bushes for best results. Instead I break the rules, plant very closely together, and benefit from a riot of color.

These types of gardens do not magically appear. It seems a lot of TLC, thought and care went into these plants. Very nicely done Rita! The pictures say it all. Thumbs up Thumbs up

Thanks. That front garden did take much work to create. But it turned out really well even if I do say so myself.
