Welcome everyone to the Ramblings of a rose lover who is involved up to his eyeball with the World Rose 2009 Convention and Festival! I've been growing roses and gardening since a child. It's my hobby, my business and my greatest passion in life. I spend much of my time hybridizing new roses and doing what I can to teach people how easyyyyy it is to grow roses! Ya, it' s thats easy, as in 1-2-3 - you can all do it too!! If you want to know more about me, read of my full profile or visit my Select Roses website. Please post any questions or comments you may have about Rose growing in this Blog. My main experience is with roses for the coastal Vancouver, BC Canada climate.
