Garden Makeovers:  Moon GardenGarden Makeovers: Moon Garden
October 4, 2012

Did you ever think about giving your gardens a total makeover? My newest garden is probably ten years old and over the years it has had additions randomly tucked in here and there. I've been thinking about a change and I think I'll start with white. How about a Moon Garden where an old patchwork garden used to be?

I have found 'White Delight' to be a prolific bloomer in my garden in the mountains of northern California. In the summer, my climate has low humidity and high temperatures. 'White Delight', growing own root, is a strong, healthy plant. I don't think I could ask for a better garden rose.
