How I Started with Roses: I've always loved to garden and my parents grew everything except roses saying they were too difficult. The first house we bought after we were first married had 4 rose bushes in a backyard planter. Each subsequent house had a larger rose garden until our most recent move when I downsized to about 60 roses. In 2008, a new neighbor invited me to a BRS society meeting and the rest is history.
