I’m trying my hand at roses again; this rose is “Pink Promise”. And this time I’ve done all my research and hope I don’t kill another rose bush. I think that my problems have been over-watering and not digging a deep enough, wide enough hole. The soil in my area is hard clay, so…
I added all the necessary compost, bone meal, garden soil and mulch. So, if I don’t get into the habit of over-watering, then I should be okay.
I selected this particular rose bush because it didn’t look like the typical “pink promise” that I’ve seen online. It is pink for sure, but it’s a very light pink and almost has a creamy peach colour to it too.
And I think I got a good location in the garden where there’s at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. I have a lot of shady spots in the garden so I need to think carefully where the next roses will be planted.
A portion of the profits made from the purchase of these roses go to Breast Cancer Research.
This rose bush is dedicated to my mother-in-law, who passed away from breast cancer many years ago.
