My browser has a Gardening tab and a long & growing list (no pun intended) of places to look for plant material. And then there is the "I bought" list in my e-mail showing order confirmations for all plant materials I've gotten online.

I went for a year acknowledging that my garden is, in fact, completely full. But it was bad for my health. I did not get outside enough. So now I try to indulge myself. Moderately. For my health. Whistling . Not that anyone here might know what I mean.


I understand and agree completely! Exercise is SO therapeutic for all kinds of aches, pains, moods and attitudes. Even if you have to create a new garden, squeeze them into a currently-existing garden or create a new garden for them, the health benefits of the exercise far outweigh all else!

Hi guys,
jumping in late but here is my list. I missed bare root season at least for regans so I will have to see who has what when My tax return finally comes in. That is when I Order usually. this year there is a hold on people with the child tax credit. I'm getting anxious for it. Any way since this will be our second spring at this new house I have lots of room still but only one bed with vacancy until I can remodel the existing beds. we are needing a new fence so I'm trying to avoid planting anything near the part of the fence that needs to be replaced. Some of these are replacements from moving some I've been wanting for a while.
my list:
buff beauty
lagerfeild (the lavender are my fave)
sheilas perfume
velchenblau (I saw zuzus on the front page and decided I needed it but I don't know where to put it.)
morden blush
bullseye
pompon flower circus
pompanella
veriegata de bologna
salet
alfred de dalmas
and probably several of the drift series for landscaping near the mailbox and sidewalk in the front of the house but we have deer and rabbits so I'm not sure if that is wise in such an easily accessible area

That sounds like a great list and a very good use for a tax refund.

Plant the drift series out front anyways to see what happens. Just because you have a lot of deer and rabbits around doesn't mean the ones around you like roses. You might be one of the lucky ones. nodding

Nice list, Dana. I think it is wise to start planting inside a fenced area where the number of visits by deer and rabbits is low. Both deer and rabbits are very fond of the new growth on roses, especially the purplish new growth one observes on certain hybrid teas and their close relatives.

I think Amanda may be onto something. I observe that roses with a strong link to multiflora and wichuriana roses tend to be judged less desireable by deer than are HT roses.. Pink Pet (aka Caldwell Pink) seems almost immune to browsing by deer, javelina, or rabbits. Several roses in Drift series are closely related to multiflora roses through the polyanthas, namely The Fairy. Several others have a good deal of wichuriana heritage. So there is a good reason to believe that roses in the series would have some resistance to browsing.

BTW, thanks for mentioning the Drift series, Amanda. I have not been paying it enough attention.

so far the bunnies in my yard have an affinity for my Cecil brunner. but i never looked into what ones they prefer that is interesting. they have tasted the drift that I have in the back but really left much of the plant. the drifts are near a high traffic area so that could be why. They have only sampled my newly planted ones so I just have to get through the first 2 years. The deer are random. we live in a subdivision thats near lots of woods but every now and then they are out in the neighborhood eating all the plants. I really love the shape of the drifts. the woman who lived here before planted strawberries all in the flowerbeds to draw the bunnies to the yard. i guess there are all kinds of gardeners lol. I'm having to undo every gardening decision she has made haha. plus there is a hedge of houtinia that the bunnies hide in ugg. That will be my last feat, getting rid of the houtineia?spelling. Ill have to thing of something less appetizing for near the mail box

Steve, didn't you mention having ordered from Jackson and Perkins in the last few years? They're offering Livin' Easy and Easy Going, 2 I've wanted for a long time but don't see many vendors offering them any more.

Those are hard to find now, Neal. You probably should snap them up.

Went ahead and ordered them, those are the only roses I've ordered this year. I may add to the order- there is one called Citrus Splash that tempts me. But for now I'm happy to have those 2 hard to find varieties I've wanted for so long ordered! Hurray!

Neal, I ordered this rose from J&P last year and was very pleased - appeared healthy and a very good size. It produced blooms shortly after delivery.

Observe, observe, observe

Thanks for the heads-up Neal! I wish I had been paying more attention. I keep confusing Livin' Easy with Easy Going. I know I bought one of those own root last year, and it has not yet completely died in my garden. Rolling my eyes. I did nab a Honey Perfume. And it's been years since I've grown Sun Flare, so I got one of those. I'm hoping it is a little better branched and more foliferous than Sunsprite which has languished a bit in my garden.

Thanks Margie! So glad to see your positive report!

Steve, I believe Easy Going is a sport of Livin' Easy. I found another vendor selling both, and I wish I'd found them before placing my order. It is High Country Roses, and they have another I've been looking for for a few years now, Distant Drums.
