This is a quiz from Ludwigs latest newsletter. If you live in South Aftrica, and answer the questions correctly, the first 10 people will win 10 rose plants! Oh, how I wish they were still here in the US--not that I have room for 10 more rose plants. So no winning of rose plants from me or this site! However, I thought this might be fun to see your responses. Here is the quiz.
