Our shipment of David Austin Bare Root Roses arrived several weeks ago from Texas. We pruned and potted them and they are now spending quality time debriefing and getting acclimated to our Central Oregon climate.
Now that I am a veteran DA wholesale buyer, I was able to secure some special varieties this year! And all Zone 4! Woo Hoo, but supplies are limited!
They will be ready for release Friday May 11th, just before Mother’s Day, so mark your calendars! Don’t miss out!
It’s mid November and the reality of the end of the garden season is settling in. But today I’m looking forward to a chilly but sunny day in the garden. I will be planting the last of my fall bulbs and peony roots. I’m excited about some of the peonies I’ll be planting today. James Mann, a nice clear pink with beautiful dark red flecks, Grace Batson, a cool dusty pink, a vintage theme comes to mind, Brands Magnificent, dark rose with hints of purple, and Inspector Laverne, a clear deep crimson.
The anticipation of seeing these babies bloom next June will have me out checking on them all winter long!
