June is upon us and I still haven't left my property since March 9th. It's a challenging year in the garden. Most of the roses started blooming in the middle of April, but then we had several days of pouring rain, which ruined most of the blooms and buds. After that, just as the surviving buds started blooming, we had a brief heatwave that fried the blooms.

The foliage has also suffered this year. In the past I've seen powdery mildew only on a few old ramblers that were tall enough to preclude overhead watering, which usually has been enough to keep powdery mildew at bay, and rust has been a rare occurrence over the years, but this year all of my OGRs and even a few modern roses were plagued by powdery mildew and rust for the whole month of April. As for black spot, ay caramba! Even Playboy, which has never suffered from black spot in my garden, had a terrible case of it this year. In addition to all of that, the damage from sawfly larvae was ridiculous this year -- marring hundreds of rose bushes instead of only half a dozen or so.

One bright spot: There are no curculio weevils in my garden this year. I haven't seen a single one, even on Soleil d'Or, their favorite rose. I guess my method of killing them on sight and never letting a weevil-damaged bud or bloom fall to the ground has worked. They might come here again someday from elsewhere, but they aren't breeding here anymore. Hurray!

The thumbnail photo for this month is Summer Rainbow, one of Jelly's exquisite hybrid teas.

So before I had this planted in full sun. As in from sunrise to sunset. 11+ hrs of sun. It bloomed very very well. But didnt have very strong scent. It was pleasant but very light. As many of you know, we dug up our roses and moved. And transplanted them. I now have Molineux in a semi morning shady spot. It doesnt get full sunlight until around 11am. Its still blooming very well. But the scent is outstanding now. Very strong. Which could be due to being 3rd year. Getting more mature. But the scent is so nice now.

One of the unknown roses here at the farm. It really looks like a single Knockout. But it has a very very strong lemon scent. Sunny knockouts grow bushy. I have one at our old house. It they fade their color very fast. And this one doesnt. It grows very leggy, and had an abundant amount of thorns.

Another NOID rose. Single petals. Light scent.

This thing has thousands of buds. Crowns of 20+ buds everywhere. This rose is 15+ years old. And was planted here before the inlaws bought the farm. The blooms are small 1.5-2" blooms. Strong scent.

I had a few weevils Zuzu, I usually get them on my Ghislaine de Feligonde but I've been so diligent with daily checking and picking the last three years, there was a very noticeable difference. I only found a handful of bloom buds with holes and snapped those off. However, they hit my South Africa this year for the first time and I had to remove several buds.

A kitchen bouquet I picked yesterday of Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale 😍


And my two bushes of it in the garden.

So gorgeous Sue! That bouquet is stunning.

I just got my Dad a Grimm's Fairy Tale from Palatine. My sister was gracious enough to drive 90 minutes each way it pick it up. I also got him

Our Anniversary (it's my parents Ruby anniversary this September)
Alfred Sisley
Lion's Fairy Tale
Le Petit Prince

I had big plans of bringing back a Palatine order with a phytosanitary certificate at Easter. That visit was cancelled of course with the quarantine so I'll have to order in the fall. They had a lot of potted roses left. I saw my Dad's and they were quite large too. Paying in Canadian dollars would have also been a nice bonus!

Happy spring, everyone (almost summer!) It's been a good season for roses here in New York's lower Hudson Valley, where we had a relatively mild winter and a very wet spring. For the first time in decades I barely had to prune any winter die-back. So the bushes are taller than normal with extra large buds. They've started blooming a week earlier than normal, so I thought I would post the first few blooms of the season.

So jealous of Betty Boop!! It came back this spring then died for some reason. I've left it in it's spot in case the roots are alive and just being a pain but I'm pretty sure it's dead. I guess it's a good excuse to buy another rose. Whistling Whistling

You're right, Mike, it has been a good season. The bushes are big, the blooms are bid, and I can hardly walk down the garden path.
My garden (in NYC) is over-stuffed due to lack of room, so I've got a lot of pruning to do. It's much too dense.

Hello all,

My next door neighbor has not lived in his house for nearly 20 years and the house and yard are showing their neglect. We started cutting back his yard to keep it out of ours. He use to have iris and roses but now mainly weeds. We kept cutting back the nearly dead scrawny roses along our fence line and now they are regrowing and blooming.😊. I know very little about roses. Can anyone give me info on what types these are? Any special care they need? Thanks in advance.

I never got to see this rose in bloom last year. It was a favourite with the deer who would eat every bud. There are fewer deer this year. Maybe because my neighbourhood is so busy with everyone at home. I see people walking dogs at 1am! Maybe high risk or shift workers.

Hi Sue, thanks for the warm welcome! It's nice to be on the forum again. Porkpal, isn't that an interesting form on the Prairie Sunrise? Not really quartered so much as an unusual unfurling of the petals. A few more roses bloomed today, so I thought I'd share them...

Hi, Mike. Great to see you back. I'm also entranced by that Prairie Sunrise bloom. Almost a case of proliferation. Quite intriguing.

Now that all the rules have changed, I've decided to start every afternoon with an ice-cold Bloody Mary. Changes my whole outlook. Big Grin

2nd year bush first flush. I was worried about this bush. Because I dug it and transplanted the entire bush. All 8 feet tall and 4-5 feet wide of it. It lost all its leaves. And was completely bare for quite a long time. But it finally started to leaf out. And bud up. I should've cut it back before digging it up. But I had it run through a homemade built trellis supporting the long 8ft long canes. And it was woven between the boards.

2nd year bush. It's getting really big. It's almost 6ft tall. Very upright growth. It has tons of new canes and buds. It's been very happy. Even after being dug up and relocated. It nvr missed a beat.

This rose bush has been severally neglected its entire life. And barely bloomed the last few years. It's over 10 years old. I started taken care of it when we moved in. Trimmed all the dead wood off, and gave it some good top soil dressing and good food. And it has exploded with growth this year. Covered in buds everywhere. Has 10 new big canes. Very soft and ruffled petals. But virtually no scent.

Our unknown once blooming Old English bloom shaped bush. This is still a NOID and havent been able to find out. It smells so amazing. Its extremely strong scented. Ot kindve reminds me of the scent that Chrysler Imperial smells like. I hope eventually one day I can figure out what called.

@Lilydaydreamer, hard to say what roses they are but obviously they are tough cookies, all they needed was some cutting back and they exploded. I'd say no special care needed! nodding
