  3. Hi Stan im always back here as hooked on roses my collection is slowly getting bigger. A while back I wrote to ask advice on two old roses trees. The neighbour damged the one and is not growing at all.The other is doing well thank goodness and I have a fair few cuttings lost a lot which I expected. We are planning to move again within the next 4 months closer to my work. We are also looking for land to build on. My question is I want to take this old rose with me will it cope with a second shock. Also I was thinking rather than plant it back into the ground in the new temp house then taking it out. To take it out now and put in a very large pot and keep it there untill we eventually move on to the new group were it will be put back into the group.I’m expecting this to be a mission as its going to have very large roots. Can any of the roots be got back or not. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

  5. Hi Stan thank you for your wonderful pictures again. I will be glad to cut back the massive canes of my old rose. Will send you another email closer to the to spring as its going to be a big job as you know have to massive rose plants both about 25 foot plus. We tried measuring them they are longer than 25 foot.each one has about 5 of these canes not been touched ever I don.t think. As I said previous got to get it right as its a big job with all that lot.Would like to replant as much as I can.

  6. Your photographs are amazing and your roses are beautiful. I was led to your page by following a link about preparing roses for cold climate winters. I live in Sacramento, CA and we seldom get snow. Usually the lowest temp is in the 40′s. I would love it if my roses would look as beautiful as yours. Do you have any recommened reading for me? Are all your roses surrounded by pebbles?
    Thank you for any suggestions you may have. So far I have 15 plants of all types.

  8. Hello – First time visitor to your site!! Really enjoyed all the beauty you captured – especially enjoyed photo of your Mother with Mr. Lincoln. I work at a greenhouse/nursery business and sold several of the roses you have. Would you by chance have one called TerraCotta? Or have a source to purchase? When I moved I lost several roses that were so beautiful and cannot find again. Thanks again for the beautiful photos!

  10. What beautiful pictures wow..I have just found a very old rose in my garden moved in about a month ago. I would like to learn how to look after this. I have smaller normal roses but this was is like something I have never seen.The main stem is about 2 3/4 inches thick with a bark type with thorns like the rest.The second about 2 inches thick,the other 4 around 3/4 thick-(ish) Its about 20-25 foot high.Higher than the two trees next to it so maybe higher than that.The bungalow is about 50 years old.Not sure how you tell the age of roses or were I’d get information on how to look after this type of rose.Also would like to prune from it in the winter but don’t want to ruin this beautiful massive rose.

  11. I have a renter who just cut to the ground my wild rose that produced tons of rose hips every year (was told a 100 years young). I dried and ground these for my homemade soap recipes. Question for you Stan. Can this rose come back to full status after being mowed down? I Maybe will have to just watch and see?
    Also, I am looking for the old Peace Rose. One of the hardest I found to survive in the heart of the Cascade Mountains of Washington State believe it or not with just a fall blanket to protect from the 5′ of snow that stays on the ground for 4 months and a very late spring unveiling. Thank you for the inspiring pictures.

  12. Your photos are very beautiful, they remind me when my grandfather was the president of the Detroit Rose Society. Around 1965. His yard had over two hundred rosebushes. The aroma in the late spring and summer was unbelievable!

  21. I have a new Knockout Rose bush. I want to know what are the red foliage that grows after I have broken off the dead blooms? are these ca;lled “suckers” and do I snip those off?

    • Hi Jeanne. The new red foliage is completely normal. That is new growth where new buds and blooms will come from so do not prune it off!! Just wait and enjoy some more blooms!
