All about growing roses, including different types and some of the problems with roses, including the virus, rose rosette. Also, Carol and Dee talk briefly about growing cabbage and how they met. They also discuss where to listen to learn more about organic and non-organic gardening.
Some books to read more about roses: Chasing the Rose: An Adventure in the Venetian Countryside by Andrea Di Robilant, Antique Roses of the South by William C. Welch, and The Sustainable Rose Garden: A Reader in Rose Culture.
The American Rose Society is a great organization to get involved in if you want to learn more about growing roses and connect with others who grow lots of roses.
To listen to find out about organic vs. non-organic gardening, we recommend an episode of Plantrama with C.L. Fornari and Ellen Zachos.
