Bare Root Roses. It’s time to start gathering those roses in winter, bare root roses!
And to get everyone off to another great rose season, Wallace Gardens is giving away a copy of the Four Seasons of Roses 2014 Monthly Guide to Rose Care by Susan Fox, including one bare root rose: David Austin’s English Rose ‘Winchester Cathedral.’ You’ll have Susan’s advice, right at your fingertips when you receive this rose, pictured above in a bare root box with Susan’s calendar. To enter: you must have a mailing address within the Continental United States. See below for instructions to enter.
The American Rose Society awarded Susan with its Presidential Citation “for Promoting the Rose and Rose Education Via Social Media,” and her photo of the Julia Child Rose is included in the 2014 ARS Calendar for the month of July. This is a woman who knows her roses.
'Winchester Cathedral' is a large, fragrant white-blooming rose. Mature size will depend upon where you live, but expect it to grow to at least 4-5’ tall and wide, with masses of white flowers that continue at regular intervals throughout the summer. David Austin describes the scent as a “Light Old Rose with hints of honey and almond.” What garden wouldn’t be improved by such summer fragrance?
Instructions to enter: all you have to do is “like” and/or comment on the ‘Winchester Cathedral’ photo on Pinterest. You must have a mailing address within the Continental United States. The winner will be selected at random and announced on TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 2014. So hop to it!
