Spring Pruning

Yesterday I gave a hard pruning to the Fairmount Cemetery Mystery Rose "Jo Ann's Pink Perpetual" and stuck the cuttings in hopes they root as despite south Tampa being Zone 9B this lusciously fragrant cold hardy rose that loves Denver THRIVES here in a 15 gallon Water Wise Container Garden. I hope to have plants to sell in about 18 months. Next I give it and 'Baronne Prevost' a good feeding and deep watering, then do the same to the lanky "Moroccan Rose" that Mike Shoup of The Antique Rose Emporium donated to my studies. The attached photo is of "Morrocan Rose" last spring when it bloomed for the first time, thriving in a buried 5 gallon Water Wise Container Garden.
