Thank You! Porkpal, but actually its not. First its a rose collector's garden so roses are placed accordingly to their function. There are now about 13 beds in the main rose garden and 2 in my patio. Slowly I'm replanting duplicates and old bushes in other parts on my land. I live on a 6.2 acre farm and therefore have plenty of space. I will eventually design the various gardens as more roses meet my landscaping design requirements. Roses are my main garden bushes. Next will be Rhodendrons and Japanese maples. I'm trying to understand how well each rose performs and how best it should be presented: either as a group of same cultivars or as individual specimens. All my gardens are informal. Only the patio around the entrance of my house is the nearest to a formal garden. The rest of them just blend into a fairly wild and rural background. Roses in particular are very well suited to this type of landscaping.

That many roses can't help but be beautiful! My landscape is also wild and rural. I have a farm, here and there I grow roses; I don't have anything one could call a "garden".

First time rose grower here. The roses were planted four weeks today. So far, they are all growing well, with Mister Lincoln having had a slight aphids issue, which was resolved. The following are the roses that were planted this season:
1. Lady of Shallot (climber/own root)
2. Rosa Mister Lincoln (hybrid tea/bare root)
3. Princess Alexandra of Kent (shrub/own root)
4. The Pote's Wife (shrub/bare root)
5. Claire Austin (shrub/bare root)
6. Ebb Tide (floribunda/ bare root)

For next year, I ordered the following roses:
1. Road Dahl (shrub/bare root)
2. The Ancient Mariner (shrub/bare root)
3.Grace (tree rose/bare root)
4. Darcy Bussell (tree rose/bare root)
5.Graham Thomas (climbing/bare root)
6. James Gallaway (climbing/bare root)

With the continued drought in southern California and rabbits that can't find anything to eat, I've so far only ordered one rose 'Eyes For You' and plan to order one of the tough Texas Pioneer roses from ARE for a rather shady spot where Blush Noisette used to be until it became diseased and I had to move it to a sunnier spot.
