Plumeria girl, next to the acorn at the bottom of your post you'll see a little square with the flag I believe that's meant to represent a book with a bookmark. Just click on it and it'll change color and then I think you bookmarked it. Just click on your name and scroll down and you'll see your bookmarks.

@Plumeriagirl:
You could do what vaporvac suggested. By bookmark, I meant that I bookmarked the blog on my web browser, Chrome.

My pleasure.

I was impressed with the way in which the climbers were secured around the wooden post using a "double helix" method
to produce more blooms.

After scrolling down to the very end the article, there is a link about pruning and regenerating roses. Here's the link:

I just wish they had proofread their article more carefully. I don't know what to think when their advice for renovating a rose recommends cutting the remaining growth "to within 4cm of the ground" (1.5 inches), especially in view of this later statement: "Miniature roses are dwarf counterparts of large flowered and cluster-flowered bushes, usually no more than 2cm tall." That's less than an inch tall. Am I reading this wrong? It is after midnight, so I could be mistaken, but it seems that they are the ones making the mistakes.

I think recommending "cutting the remaining growth "to within 4cm of the ground" (1.5 inches)" is referring only to HT's & floribundas.

"Miniature roses are dwarf counterparts of large flowered and cluster-flowered bushes, usually no more than 2cm tall." This is most likely a typo mistake - should read 25 cm.

That's probably true, Margie, but my point is that it's hard to trust the "4cm" advice after seeing the "2cm" typo.
