Ohh I love roses so much, yours are beautiful, chico. I live out in the country with a lot of deer and want to plant some roses. Heard deer like to munch on the buds, do you know if this is true?

I don't know about Deer,I don't have any here:sad:the only thing that damages my buds are Aphids and they are easy to take care of.
I think if I had deer,I'd sacrifice my roses

Oh they are beautiful Chico. I love the white one, is it the JFK? Saw a photo in a magazine once that featured a garden done with only white flowers and it was stunning.
I will have to get some tips from you next spring to ensure that all my roses are untouched by disease or aphids.

I live in the country too, deer do not bother mine, although mine are miniatures and maybe they can't be bothered. Chico does live in the 'Golden Horseshoe', maybe that's the difference, but they are beautiful.

those peachy ones are so pretty.... I had roses at my old house, but I have these pesky black thumbs ( i just left them be and they seems to grow alright) as soon as I mess in the garden its capput! I am doin all right with some mums though.

An all white garden, that sounds cool.

I don't grow them due to this horrible black thumb of mine but my neighbour does and we have alot of deer coming through and they never touch them.

Thank's,although growing roses is a bit out of fashion,I still love them..
Lukkas mom,yes it is the JFK rose,it's done really well since I planted it.
The pink rose,I brought from a town-house we lived in,when we first came to Canada,that makes it at least 20yrs old

Beautiful roses Chico . I don't think roses are out of fashion at all. They are classic and still one of the most loved IMO.
