Summer Rose Care Sets The Stage For Fabulous Fall Rose Bloom

'Sugar Plum' Cascades of Candelabras of Fragrant Plum Roses in Fall

Summer Time of Easy Livin’ Sets The Stage

It’s the dog days of summer. Excessive heat can create conditions for our roses to produce smaller blooms and stunted growth to preserve water. Many gardeners don’t realize that right now is the time to prepare for a glorious fall rose display.

August is the time to prepare for a spectacular fall rose bloom

September, October, November and even up until Christmas, fall is perfect throughout much of the country to spend time in your rose garden. You can enjoy the fruits of your labor, contemplate strategies for expansion and begin to winterize your roses. The cooler temperatures of fall create a glorious canvas for the fall rose show. It’s time now to begin the process of cutting back roses for your fall bloom. ‘Kimberlina’, a ‘Floribunda of the Year’ 2009 winner is such a spectacular rose in the fall I chose it to show you how to cut back your roses to create a spectacular fall bloom.

Cutting Back Your Roses For Fall

Cooler Temperatures of Fall Intensify Colors

Cooler temperatures in fall create a palette of colors that makes your roses look doubly magnificent. From Wisconsin to Texas I’ve seen roses continue to bloom through the holidays. Roses can tolerate 3 days of hard frost of temperatures below 21 degrees before they are fully dormant for the season. So you can plan on roses for your bouquets for the Thanksgiving table in Illinois, maybe even Wisconsin. September is time to determine if there are still any American Rose Society rose shows in the area you may want to exhibit at as well.

Here are some ‘Rose of the Year’ winners and roses exclusive to Jackson & Perkins that I’ve grown from IL to Texas successfully that bloom beautifully all season and into the fall:

#1 ‘Kimberlina’ ‘Floribunda of the Year’ 2009

 

#2 ‘Black Cherry’ ‘Floribunda of the Year’ 2006

Cooler Nights Begin

The nights begin to get cooler which creates an environment for black spot* and mildew so water early in the day allowing time for your garden to dry out before night fall. When you travel, and if you are putting in a small rose garden, the perfect watering solution is planting your roses in the Greenwell Water Saver

Nature Demands Balance

When roses (and virtually any other plant) reach the point of excessive water stress, they don’t “feed,” nor do they try to grow, they simply endure the heat to remain alive. That’s why even when you’re watering daily with what feels like excessive water amounts, many rose bushes will begin shedding their leaves to reduce their water stress. Many folks mistakenly think that dropping of leaves means their plant may be dying or they have “done something wrong.” Let’s dispel the myth. This is nature’s way of plant preservation during excessive heat. Since roses transpire through their foliage, dropping some of their leaves helps minimize water loss. This slows and can literally stop the flow of sap from the roots upward, so no food is taken in. Remember cutting back for fall to leave some foliage because roses feed through their leaves. Nature demands balance. Even in times of extreme heat I have seen my roses continue to remain pretty with just smaller blooms and less frequent bloom cycles. Roses seem to go into almost a dormancy state to conserve energy and water during the hottest part of summer.

August Rose Garden Check List

  • Remove all debris from the garden
  • Check for spider mites by feeling the underside of the leaves, they look & feel like salt and pepper and can be removed with a water jet spray 
  • Fertilize with Jackson & Perkins Continuous Slow Release Plant Food Roses Ultimate Collection Rose Food
  • Add a layer of Good Dirt Soil Conditioner around each rose bush, top with hard wood mulch with breaks down into the soil and replaces it
  • Check out DIY composting options to convert useful veggie scraps into soil building organic plant food  
  • Replace mulch as needed to conserve water and keep your bed cooler
  • Continue watering program, plant new roses using Greenwell Water Saver
  • Order fall rose deals and companion plants like clematis specials that you can plant now. 

Summer Rose Watering Guide

90+ degrees:    Water every day

80 degrees:       Water every two days

70 degrees:       Water every three days

60 degrees:       Water every four days

50 degrees:       Water every five days

  • Check hanging baskets and container roses daily because they dry out much faster than plants planted in the ground
  • Check on any fall rose shows, cut roses back for rose shows and State Fairs
  • Cut back your roses and stagger the times of pruning from now thru through the end of September when you want to start to let your roses form rose hips and go into dormancy so they don’t bloom all at once (what’s known as ‘cropping’)
  • Prune your rose like a vase

How To Cut Back Your Roses For A Fabulous Fall Bloom

A good rule of thumb is to prune your rose bush about one-third to one-half their height. Prune out dead wood. Leave the strong hardy canes. Just deadhead your new rose bushes.

Folks that show roses cut back for the rose shows in their area or for the County and State Fairs. If you plan on showing in your local rose shows then cut back your roses based on this handy guide to approximately how long it takes to grow a rose:

Repeat Rose Cycles In Days  

Hybrid teas, grandifloras, and floribundas:                            42 to 54 Days

Multi-Petal Floribundas (Europeana):                                          54-60 days 

Single Petal Floribundas (Playboy)                                                35 Days            

Miniatures                                                                                              35-42 Days                

Follow this guide to a spectacular fall rose bloom and you can enjoy autumn in your garden and your roses will enter into winter dormancy the better for it as stronger plants.

Organic treatment for black spot

* Treatment: According to author and horticultural professor Jeff Gillman, who has conducted extensive research on black spot remedies, a spray composed of one part cow’s milk* and two parts water is the best answer to the disease. When applied weekly, the solution controls black spot as well as any synthetic fungicide, including Chlorotalonil.

Gillman says he thinks it’s the lactoferrin that milk contains that makes it effective against black spot. Lactoferrin also helps to fight diseases in people.

*any fat content you prefer. Rice, soy, and almond milk will have no affect on roses.

ANOTHER UPDATE: 2/3 water and 1/3 milk solution works on black spot. The solution also acts as a deer repellent according to the West Virginia Botanical Garden. I haven’t tried it with the raccoons as of yet, but I sure intend to try it.

Angels In The Rose Garden

Angel Watching Over My Glasses

“All Night, All Day Angels Watching Over Me”

Angel Fountain | Angel Bird Bath
Angel Fountain | Angel Bird Bath

How did the angel rose garden come to be? It was Divine intervention. Driving home from church one evening in Dallas, Texas I heard Kathleen Battle sing “All Night, All Day Angel’s Watching Over Me” on 101.1 FM. Listen to this haunting lullaby. You will never forget it. The lyrics are so simple, now this lullaby is part of our evening bed time repertoire for the babies.

How Many Roses Are Too Many?

The answer to the question is: when you run out of space. Have you noticed that most beautiful gardens are usually in back yards literally hidden from view? You work sometimes your entire life creating a stationary work of art and unless you have an “open house” only your eyes and the eyes of God will see those flowers that open once only to have the petals flutter to the ground in a season unseen.

Angel Watching Over My Glasses
Angel Bird Bath & Izzabelle Watching Over My Glasses

My mantra is a “garden is meant to be shared.”

The logical expansion place for your garden is at your front door. We had over 225 roses in Texas. When we moved to Illinois I told ‘Big Daddy’ that perhaps we should have a rose garden that consisted of maybe 35 roses.

'Tropical Lightning' Blooming on 4th of July Week-End
‘Tropical Lightning’ Blooming on 4th of July Week-End in the Angel Rose Garden

Then I changed the inventory to no more than 100.

The plan was to put the gardens in in stages and show you that everyone can start over and have rose gardens established and blooming rapidly.  Thus emerged the angel water fountain and bird bath by the brick planter at the front door and the “Angel Rose Garden” because I believe a garden can be enhanced by titillating the 5 senses, sight, the sound of water or wind chimes, and fragrance.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Others

Roses in the Angel Rose Garden

  • ‘Cinco de Mayo
  • ‘Yabba Dabba Doo
  • ‘Tropical Lightning’
  • 2 ‘Top Gun’ (Resistant To Rose Rosette)
  • ‘Grande Dame’
  • ‘Easy To Please’

*When these bareroot roses arrived some are own-root roses, which I find to be more winter hardy. I soaked all of the roses in water that I add a Haven Brand tea bag, its a product a friend makes on her Haven Farm. Its an organic, all natural, organic, American made, soil conditioner called MooPoo Tea. Call, tweet or email Annie Twitter: @GreenSoil with any questions she will get right back to you ASAP.

People asked me what else I use and I add soil amendments I used to mix myself until I found that Beaty Fertilizer makes Mill Mix. Its Called Mills Rose Magic and I add it as the totally organic soil amendments I used to buy in 40-50 pound bags at the feed store and mix myself but now its all I use

Building A New Rose Garden

 
Welcome To Green Acres: “What’s A Hybrid Tea?”

Starting over can be hard to do. Add giving up your award-winning dream rose garden, designed with love and filled with over 200 varieties it can be doubly hard. Living in a vibrant booming metro area, accepting the exceptional as the norm was a gradual paradigm shift for me. It never occurred to me I might have difficulty locating the rose varieties I left behind in my Plano award winning rose garden*.“

“He who would have beautiful roses in his garden must have beautiful roses in his heart.”     ~ Reverend Dean Hole     

My first indication it might be difficult to locate the varieties of container roses I was looking for was when I called the closest garden center (that I had to locate by going online and downloading the list of landscape & garden centers in the area) I could find and asking the garden associate that answered the phone if they had hybrid teas. Who promptly replied, “What’s a hybrid tea?”

This is ‘Black Cherry’ in my Plano, Texas garden. Thrilled to locate it at Jackson & Perkins its in this garden now! It came in a 2 quart container!

“Where can I find roses like you have?”

The question most often asked of me at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show while I worked at the rose garden promoting membership in the American Rose Society for ten days all day every day was, “where can I find roses like yours?” Thanks to Jackson and Perkins now you can have the varieties of roses you see in my pictures without the grief I had locating them. In a populated metroplex I had become used to selecting roses from a landscape & garden center that had roses nicely potted in containers placed all in a row, alphabetized by their name that published the list of availability a season in advance to download. Moving to a rural area was a wake-up call and a learning experience.

Transition From Gentrified Urban Rosarian To Rural Rose Gardener
Transition From Gentrified Urban Rosarian To Rural Rose Gardener

From Gentrified Urban Rosarian To Country Rose Gardener

As a totally spoiled DFW Metroplex dweller, the garden center I chose my roses from delivered them in 5 gallon containers on a flatbed truck. They also list their roses each year on their Web site in the fall of each year announcing the roses that will be available in February of the next year.

Jackson & Perkins Rose Garden | 2018 Test Roses

In this rural area of Illinois now like so much of the country where so many folks live that want roses, the closest garden center that sells any potted roses in containers is 80 miles away. Then when I drove to this garden center I found the selection wanting because after having a discussion with the owner of the Landscape Center on how he arrived upon his rose buying decisions the family run store said he gave the order form to an employee and they selected roses based on whether they liked the names. His inventory had already told the story. Roses that were ‘out of patent’ that had great names were sitting on his floor.

 

Black Cherry, Floribunda Rose Gagasgarden
I was Looking For Roses Like ‘Black Cherry’ Seen here growing in my Plano, Texas Garden

Spoiled pampered Gentrified Urban Rosarian that I was I thought I would waltz into the local Garden Center and select my container roses growing in 5 gallon pots and have all the roses I needed ordered and delivered to my new gardens.  Wrong. The  closest Landscape & Garden Center with any selection of container roses is 80 miles away and they didn’t then and still don’t carry the varieties I want.

So let’s talk about the facts.

Percentage of the Population in Rural Areas | Growth Target To Sell Roses

Welcome to Rural America Retailers

The rural portions of metropolitan areas with fewer than 1,000,000 residents cover 94 percent of their land areas. These areas include approximately 20 million residents, or 34 percent of the nation’s rural population. Only six percent of the land area in these metropolitan areas is urban.

Outside Metropolitan Area

This leaves a minority of 27.5 million rural residents living outside the metropolitan areas.Metropolitan areas are defined by OMB as labor markets with core urban areas between 10,000 and 50,000, and are not considered metropolitan. Approximately 98.5 percent of the land in micropolitan areas is rural. The rural population of micropolitan areas is 13 million. other 14 million rural residents live outside the micropolitan areas. However, there are still 4.7 million urban residents outside both metropolitan and micropolitan areas, with each of these urban areas having fewer than 10,000 residents.

Rural Land in Metropolitan America

Even where America is most urban, a strong rural element remains. This is illustrated in the Northeast Corridor, the “megalopolis” defined by Jean Gottman more than a half-century ago. The urbanization he identified is still short of continuous along the corridor. Rural areas interfere with urbanization in parts of Maryland, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Nearly 60 percent of the land area in these adjacent metropolitan areas remains rural (Figure 5).

Question: Where Do You Get Your Roses Now?

I get my roses from the one of oldest most trusted brand names in America, a name that is synonymous with roses: Jackson & Perkins. I remember my mother buying roses and trusting Jackson & Perkins as her rose source. Now the 3rd rose garden has been transitioned back to where my heart leads me. It’s a Jackson & Perkins test rose garden. It has 4 Jackson & Perkins roses that as of yet are unmanned. Some of the most famous rose breeders have worked with Jackson & Perkins.  The roses in the garden are in the list below, you can click and vote on whether you like them. The biggest surprise I have saved for last. While in Chicago I worked, as you know representing Chicago Flower Show Director, Tony Abruscato and he partnered with Chicago Sculpture Exhibit. The artists would come and spend some time at the rose garden where we had their sculptures.

Sculpture by Michael Young | Chicago Sculpture Exhibit

Since I was there full time representing the rose garden, I also spoke for the sculpture artists as well. Michael Young is an artist that I ended up promoting and I believe we may have sold some of his pieces and the piece that was on display. Soon we hope to have a Michael Young Sculpture to set off the beauty of this Jackson & Perkins exquisite Rose Garden.

Benefits of the American Rose Society

Your comments & shares are welcome especially that I support the American Rose Society that offers so much in return for a minimal investment. Its one of the few memberships that still print a beautiful magazine 6 times a year with valuable educational information, a newsletter and an invaluable tool to choose roses: The American Rose Societies handbook for Selecting Roses, and once a year the Rose Annual. I have contributed articles to the newsletter, magazine and the Rose Annual, and would be happy to provide you with a copy of each.

Planting A Memorial Day Rose Garden

'Memorial Day' Blooming on a Fall Day in Illinois

Memorial Day Is To Honor Those Who Have Died in America’s Wars

Planting a ‘Memory Garden’ of roses gives you a connection to your loved ones that can keep your memories of them alive. It’s a deeply rewarding endeavor and can be a family project. Here’s how:

  1. Decide who you want to memorialize, perhaps order or make a plaque or bench for spending time and reflection. The Gardens of the American Rose Society offer ways to memorialize loved ones in their rose gardens in Shreveport, LA.
  2. Choose a location with 6-8 hours of sun. Some roses can do fine in partial shade. Both Europeana & Iceberg became covered in partial shade in my Texas rose garden and continued to flourish. This article discusses roses in partial shade by Al Whitcomb.
  3. You can order ‘Memorial Day’ from Jackson & Perkins’ online to plant as a tribute to loved ones. The most often asked question I had at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show is “Where do I find the varieties of roses I have?”, Jackson & Perkins online is an excellent source for Weeks Roses, Star & Certified Roses, since they are wholesale rose growers.
  4. Here are some ideas of roses suitable for a Memory Rose Garden, and ‘Memorial Day’ is a rose that tolerates heat very well. It’s included in the June issue of the American Rose Magazine article I wrote ‘Some Roses Like It Hot’ .

“We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we do know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.”

James A. Garfield
May 30, 1868 Arlington National Cemetery

In 1873, New York was the first state to designate Memorial Day as a legal holiday

During that first national celebration, former Union Gen. and sitting Ohio Congressman James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, after which 5,000 participants helped to decorate the graves. The tradition of laying wreaths on the graves of our soldiers that lost their lives to War is carried out in cemeteries by devoted families all across our great country to this day. In fact many family members place wreaths on graves of veterans that have passed away as well even though Memorial Day is expressly to honor our war dead.

By the late 1800s, cities all across America observed Memorial Day. Several states had declared it a legal holiday, since it was widely established as a national holiday throughout the country.

When Is Memorial Day?*

In 1971, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act and established that Memorial Day was to be celebrated on the last Monday of May. “Memorial Day is celebrated at Arlington National Cemetery each year with a ceremony in which a small American flag is placed on each grave. Traditionally, the President or Vice President lays a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. About 5,000 people attend the ceremony annually.” 

* PBS.org educating folks on the true meaning of Memorial Day.

Roses Evoke Fond Memories

Memorial Gardens are becoming more popular as a way to honor and pay tribute to those that have passed on. Roses are especially popular as a flower to plant ‘In Loving Memory” because they are a trigger to so many fond memories of loved ones in our life either by their name that is like the loved ones name or our loved ones loved roses as their favorite flower. So this Memorial Day is a good time to plant a Memorial Garden and start your very own Garden of Memories. We’re only a Website away to answer your questions about rose growing. Have a blessed Memorial Day.

Thoughts from Trevor

“Good afternoon Susan. 🙂 Omg, that’s so exciting –  I was literally just thinking the other day about how bummed I was that I couldn’t indulge in the Jackson & Perkins 50% off rose sale that ended a week or so ago because I just had a bunch of surgeries recently, so I’m trying to pay a bunch of medical bills off. In addition, I lost my best friend of 15 years on Mother’s Day of last year, so the anniversary of her death looming has been difficult to cope with. So hearing this wonderful news just fills me with joy!!”                ~ Trevor Singh
