something pretty

Post  bbbevey on 6/23/2013, 10:09 am

I had a small garden next to the house that I would put odds and ends in. Swiss chard did great there, but them, i'm thinking it probably does great anywhere.



But this year, I put in four rose bushes. A yellow (my mom and grandmothers favorite) A white, a pink and a red.

That is my third rose and ohhhh the fragrance....intoxicating I love you

rose
we have read it helps keep the aphids away..

That is good to know. I DO know that they can be a pain in the you know what. When they first started growing I was getting tiny tiny pin holes in my first rose and the leaves. Looked it up and it might have been a flea beetle.  Bought some neem oil and have been spraying with that.  Sprayed some aphids with it a couple days later also and haven't seen them on again, but I do like knowing more organic ways to keep the bugs away.  Keep me posted on how you think it works during the season. Love your name, I chose Rose for my confirmation name also. Smile
