Congratulations! It's A Bouncing Baby Rose!

We've been potting up roses all week and now the propagation house is rapidly filling up with baby roses.

And all kinds of roses including many we have not seen in years. Duke of York (left), Rosenstadt Zwiebruken (right), Floral Fairy Tale (below left), Crepescule (below right); the list goes on and on.

We are moving through the plants in the ground taking cuttings at a rapid pace. We want to make sure we have new plants of as many of our roses as possible. The side benefit is that it is building our inventory and who this is going to really make happy are our customers.

Our selections of roses dropped over the last two years but this year we seem to heading back in the right direction. And that is to offer all kinds of great roses that are hard to find everywhere else. By the looks of the propagation house we are on the right track!

This is a part of the job I love. Potting up young plants, watching them grow and seeing old friends come around again. I'm a lucky man.
