This is sad news. I am grateful to her for helping me on the other forums when I was just a beginner. I remember when I was stressing about pruning New Dawn-in my climate, an enormous thug-and she recommended that I stop anguishing over such stuff,told about just using a pair of shears on a rose like ND,and then going back ,if necessary,and do a little detail clean-up...In other words, she helped me make the move from being a scared, overly finicky beginner to becoming a bold Rose Gardener! Thank you, Lynette. We will miss you.
