Wedgwood Roses: The Report of My Death Was an Exaggeration

It’s such a happy moment to see plants, which seemed to struggle, come fighting back, as the case with my Wedgwood roses. These climbers were purchased along with many other David Austin roses within days of each other. Some of those roses have thrived while others, like these, seemed to be stressed with the change of environment (although I was about 5 miles away from the nursery). Still, these roses soldiered on. Check out the new growth emerging from what look like dead canes and also the new grow emerging from the base of the other plant. I have been hesitant to prune any “dead” canes for fear that they, too, have the potential to push out new growth. So, in the meantime, my English rose container garden is an unusual mix of thriving, flowering plants and others that seem to be in a (hopefully) temporary state of elegant decay. I am patient and will let these plants guide next steps. So very encouraging!IMG_3322IMG_3323
