The Roses In Front Of the Library Are Still Beautiful
September 09, 2010
The roses in front of the Dearborn Branch have done just great this year. I am amazed, after the harsh weather this last year. Last winter, we would come to work in the morning and the plants would be drifted almost out of sight with snow. They also thrived with just occasional watering during the worst heat of the summer.
We have many books to help you plan gardens, grow beautiful roses, and grow crops for food. One book is Growing Beautiful Roses by Barbara Wilde. It has hundreds of color pictures, and tells how big the plants get so you can plan landscaping. This book also talks about which roses attract birds and other wildlife.
