Rachel’s Rose

The day has been warmer, briefly, but windy and with an icy shower. I refused to think about it. I am thinking about Roses. I am thinking about Rachel’s Rose which I wrote about here.  Rachel’s Rose is an old trouble-free  farmhouse rose, name forever lost, but there are now new trouble-free roses available with a long season of bloom Peter Kukielski, former curator of the NYBG Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden,  is the man to tell you about them in his new book Roses Without Chemicals: 150 Varieties that will change the way you grow roses and on his new website.

    Definitely keep your mind on these beautiful roses. Warm thoughts like this can melt away the spring time ice.

    Lisa – My mind is filled with roses. On Saturday I am giving a talk on the sustainable rose and will be mentioning Peter Kukielski’s new book Roses Without Chemicals with beautiful photos of 150 roses..
